MTÜ Reval Folk

MTÜ Reval Folk asutati 2017. aasta sügisel. Kodanikualgatuse korras sündinud kontsertide sarjas tehakse koostööd Eesti Muusika- ja Teatriakadeemia pärimusmuusika erialaga. Kontserdisarja eesmärk on tuua pärimusmuusika ja sellel põhinev autorilooming Tallinnasse. Reval Folk tutvustab muusikuid nii Eestist kui välismaalt. Soovime kasvatada huvi pärimusmuusika eriala omandamise vastu Eesti Muusika- ja Teatriakadeemias, et tagada kultuuri jätkusuutlikkus. Korraldame õpitubasid ja suviti Rõuge vallas toimuvat rahvusvahelist muusikalaagrit ning pakume kontserdivõimalusi ka mujal Eestis – nii on pärimusmuusika haaratud rohkem igapäevaellu. Lähem info: ja IN ENGLISH Reval Folk is a civic initiative that began in cooperation with 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. In the summer of 2018 we plan to organise an international folk music camp named “Reval Ethno” for children who are 8-16 years of age. Our aim is to eventually have a regular presence of folk music in the Tallinn music scene. More info: ja
