ESTONIAN VOICES 

Award-winning Estonian Voices are an a cappella vocal sextet that like to mix it up.

Jazz, classical and folk styles all get their attention, with a repertoire of both original and

traditional pieces – including a few pop hits.

 

Their clever style fuses playfulness with absolute technical mastery, bound together

with a cheeky smile and a charming sprinkle of vocal artistry.

 

Some of the field’s greatests like Peder Karlsson from The Real Group and Britt

Quentin from M-Pact have recognized Estonian Voices as a unique sounding vocal ensemble

not only in Estonia, but in Europe and why not worldwide.

Made up of Kadri Voorand (alto), Mikk Dede (tenor), Mirjam Dede (soprano), Maria

Väli (soprano), Rasmus Erismaa (baritone), Aare Külama (bass) the group has been singing

together since the 2010.

 

Their first gig was a pretty big deal: the Estonian Christmas Jazz Festival in 2011,

which saw the group perform works arranged by Voorand. Following success of that show, it

has gone on to perform across Estonia, as well as taking tours to Germany, Russia, Sweden,

Switzerland, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and China. Collaborators have included the Estonian

Dream Big Band, jazz vocalist Datevik Hovanesian as well as former M-pact artistic director

Britt Quentin. They also performed with New York Voices Christmas concert in 2013, and

with Take 6 in 2016.

 

Estonian Voices released their first album Ole Hea (Be Good) in 2014, which won the

Estonian Best Jazz Album of the year 2015. In 2016 they were awarded Best Jazz Artist in

Estonia. In summer 2018 they released their second album Taat läks lolliks (An old man lost

his marbles) wich is mostly influenced by estonian folk music. It won the Estonian Best Jazz

Album of the year 2018.
