Estonian song festival a mystery


The Estonian Song Festival took place in Tallinn on the weekend, attended by around 100,000 participants

The festival takes place every five years and is one of the biggest events for amateur choirs worldwide. The daily Postimees explains what makes it so unique:

What is the big message that is brought to perfection in hundreds of hours of rehearsals and then hurled skyward in this moment of shared singing and listening? It is the same news that has been handed down to us by the millennia-old runo songs and choir culture. Granted, we borrowed this culture from the Germans, but it has attained a unique form among the people of the Baltic. Our songs and choir culture announce not only that we deserve to exist, but also that we and our culture really do endure.

… That is our message to the world: that is the Estonian mystery
