Estonian folk-tronica duo Maarja Nuut and Ruum are headed to our shores for their inaugural Australian tour and will be performing at Howler in Melbourne on Thursday 7 March with special guest APHIR as well as appearances at Womadelaide and Womad New Zealand.

The sound of Maarja Nuut and Ruum is the velvet clash of disparate voices from a shared cultural heritage colliding. Nuut is a vocalist and violinist with a love for the old traditional songs of her homeland, while Ruum– whose birth name is Hendrik Kaljujärv – has favoured electronic music since his earliest musical forays.

Yet when creating in unison, the shared aesthetic of Maarja Nuut and Ruum forges a beguiling musical interzone: connecting the deep-rooted, intuitive worldview of days past with the hyper-mediated realities and seemingly limitless technological possibilities of the present and future.
