  • Tõnis Kirsipu (percussion instruments, body instrument, vocal)


The accordion, vocals and the rhythm of the body instrument sounds like a band but if you add a thrillingly groovy rhythm engine, it becomes a full orchestra!

These two men from Viljandi like to play around with musical instruments but they do not shy away from more serene Nordic soundscapes either. Runo-songs, bagpipe tunes and newer folklore – in all of their songs, they are constantly searching for uniqueness in simplicity and minimalism and power in their music.

Rhythmic but contemplative, original but nevertheless traditional!
