Ancient Sounds
Irja Orav | Portland, OR USA | 09/09/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The CD, "Saatus", is of primary interest to two groups: music historians; and Estonians who wish to learn more about their culture. Until the fall of the Soviet Union, Estonians in exile had little or no opportunity to visit their native country; but the music and folk dance traditions have continued, even to the young generation of today. The ancient songs have rarely been heard at gatherings and festivals. "Saatus" brings together several selections so that the listener gains a broader view of the sounds and words of early Baltic musicians/singers. The chant-like, repetitive qualities of the songs are hypnotic. However, even music historians would have difficulty understanding the intent and content of the songs without the ability to understand or speak Estonian."
I love it!

"Regilaul or regivärss is to Estonians what delta blues is to Americans. This particular recording is exceptionally good and recorded very professionally. Kirile Loo's voice is amazing. I recommend this CD to all the folk music lovers out there. It would certainly be a valuable addition to your collection. For people with Estonian heritage - this is a must have."
