Trad.Attack! and Onuka set to hold a joint concert at Russian Cultural Centre during Tallinn Music Week

Tallinn Music Week (TMW) taking place next week from 27th March to 2nd April features a joint event from a pair of forward-thinking folk groups – Estonian Trad.Attack! and Ukrainian Onuka – in the Russian Cultural Centre on Friday 31st March.

Estonian power-folk threesome Trad.Attack! has just released a video for their single “Säde” (“Spark”), a new track off their upcoming album “Kullakarva” (“Shimmer Gold”) set to be released on May 19th this year. The album promotion tour takes them all around Europe and beyond right after sharing their new bombastic songs with the home crowd.

The aptly named threesome comes alive where the new and old collide and spark, taking the hauntological blasts from the past – scratchy archive recordings of long vanished village singers –, splicing the traditional instruments with electronics and pulling it all right into the 21st century. The multiple winners of Estonian Music Awards and Estonian Ethno Music Awards have toured from Scandinavia to Malaysia, including a show at the prestigious Womad Festival in Chile, since their first ever public performance at TMW exactly three years ago. These days their performances are like massive pop shows with disco balls and high energy, proving that it’s possible to pair folk-based music with a modern stage production, visuals and choreography.

On Friday 31st March. Trad.Attack! will be joined by their kindred spirits from Ukraine in the live concert with an impressive modern stage production. Mixing wisdom of the past with glacial synth-pop and sleek looks, Onuka will provide the perfect counterbalance to turbocharged Trad.Attack!.

Founded in 2013, Onuka has won several national music awards from “Discovery of the year” to ELLE style award. They have performed at festivals over Europe, including Sziget in Budapest and Eurosonic in Holland. On stage the group expands to seven musicians and varied tools from antique flutes to traditional Hutsul trembita. Combined with through cutting-edge technology and forward-thinking fashion sense, Onuka is a sharp example of folk-gone-futuristic.

Trad.Attack! and Onuka will perform at the Russian Cultural Centre on Friday, March 31st. Doors open at 20.00, concert starts at 21.00.

Entry with TMW passes or single ticket.

Single tickets for the concert are on sale through Estonian Piletilevi.

TMW 2017 passes are on sale at TMW web store.
