Estonian Music Week 2023
EMW returns to a full festival format with programming spread over several days (May 24-28) and two cities (Toronto and Hamilton).
The 5th anniversary festival aims to give you the sights, sounds and tastes of the Nordic high-life right here in Canada. Audiences are invited to spaces that range from intimate clubs to vast industrial grounds all of which make spectacular sound and light a top priority.
EMW features a wide range of genres and artists that like to blur those boundaries. They include folk artist of the year Mari Kalkun, avant garde jazz pianist and composer Kirke Karja, experts of ancient folk hymns Triskele, renowned electronic music innovator Kara-Lis Coverdale. Big surprises are still to come as we announce the full lineup including many notable Canadians.
