Night of the Arts in Suvilahti
Eesti Maja – Viro-keskus
Sörnäisten rantatie 22, Helsinki
24.08.2017 at 17.00–22.00
Estonian Institute in Finland, together with other institutions of the Estonian House, will participate in the Night of the Arts in Suvilahti.
Everyone is welcome to listen to Estonian music, eat delicious Estonian food, watch Estonian films and meet nice people.
Near the Estonian House, musicians Cätlin Mägi and Marko Mägi will perform. The couple’s musical collaboration dates back to 2004 when they studied at Viljandi Cultural Academy and started together in a band Ro:Toro. In the meantime, there have been many different musical activities in cooperation with a wide range of musicians around the world. In Estonia, Cätlin and Marko are often playing together with Liisi Koikson and Jaan Tätte, for example, or with the Police and Border Guard Orchestra. Besides all ensembles and orchestras, there is an interesting challenge for these two musicians to make music as a duo and to travel on the paths of centuries-old Estonian musical traditions with a bagpipe and a saxophone.
The film program contains short films by students of the Baltic Film, Media, Arts and Communication School. The program includes Sten-Robert Pullerits’s “State of Mind”, Vladislav Mukovnin’s “Pobeda”, Tormi Torop’s “Declarations of Love” and Felix Mangus’s “The Present”.
Cätlin Mägi and Marko Mägi are invited to Suvilahti by Friends of Viljandi Society.
