On Wednesday May 24th artists and music industry professionals gathered at The Annex Hotel in Toronto for the first of two Nordic Connect Conference sessions. This time, artists offered information on the Estonian music market and the genesis of Estonia's booming folk scene.
Then, at Tartu College, the Launch Party kicked off. While drinks and bites floated around, pianist Kirke Karja, early music experts Ansambel Triskele, and singer-songwriter Mari Kalkun serenaded the room. The audience befriended the artists and spontaneous singing took place, making for a jubilant party.
