LEANA VAPPER-DHOORE AND HARTWIN DHOORE:
Leana and Hartwin are an Estonian-Flemish duo, their performances include flutes, bagpipes and a diatonic accordion, and they reside in Saaremaa (Estonia). Their musical creations are like a boat trip from Flanders to Estonia, where the waves set the pace and the accompanying soft breeze takes you in new directions.
Both Leana and Hartwin share a love of folk music and beautiful Estonian nature, as such their music (mostly original pieces) is also inspired by beautiful landscapes, untouched nature, plants, animals, and the heart-warming people they have met on their journey. https://www.facebook.com/LeanaHartwin/

Leana and Hartwin are also the founders of “Estbel”, one of today’s most successful Estonian folk bands.
At the end of January the group will perform at “Celtic Connections”, one of the oldest and most prestigious folk festivals in Europe.
Hartwin Dhoore is also part of “Trio Dhoore” group, which he formed with his brothers. Trio Dhoore has been successful in both Belgium and abroad. Their next destination is a tour in the UK.
Maimu Jõgeda is a promising young accordionist who released her first album “Dedication” (Pühendus) in 2017.

Reval Folk is a civic initiative that was started by NGO Reval Folk and the folk music department of the Tallinn-based Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre.
Our aim is to offer people in busy Tallinn the chance to reconnect with their roots through regular folk music concerts (that offer both traditional music and music inspired by traditional music) and workshops. Our second biggest aim is to inspire young people to study folk music on a professional level in the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre.
