Estonia comes to life with music throughout the summertime, and visitors can get a taste of local song, dance, food and traditions at folk music festivals. Listen to rock bands in a forested village or be serenaded by violins at the seaside. Even witness the remarkable Seto Leelo singing style – a UNESCO intangible heritage tradition. These intimate events bring you close to Estonian nature and people.

Many great and skillful violinists and luthiers have lived on Kihnu island. Luckily we have a great selection of recorded materials that give an idea of the level, style and originality of the former violinists. The violin festival gives the locals an opportunity to get to know the traditions of their island. Festival guests will hear the best violinists of Estonia honouring the violin traditions of Kihnu. The festival days are filled with discussions about how instruments are traditionally taught, playing instruments and concerts. Every guest has a wonderful opportunity to be a part of the island culture and the wonderful nature of Kihnu.
