Viljandi Folk Music Festival

Similarly to previous years, this year's festival theme is inspired by the current situation of the folk music scene and the events taking place in the world.

Every day, original songs are composed which are not directly based on traditional music but which still play around adventurously with the style elements of traditional music while being inspired by the vast world of sounds around us. You cannot go wrong with leaning on traditions and knowing your roots but you also have to notice what is going on around you at the very moment and know how to learn from it. Throughout times, people have valued singers and instrument players who have created songs and tunes which reflect on the present moment and touch people deeply by immortalising these events.
