Maarja Nuut is a singer and violinist. An utterly compelling, often hypnotic performer, known for her solo performances filled with quirky and haunting storytelling.
The modal sound of the pre-Soviet, Estonian “village style” - and her constant experiments with live looping - are central to her music.
Maarja’s debut was the self-released “Soolo” (Solo) in 2013. Three years later, now a veteran of the world folk circuit - with acclaimed performances at Womex and Womad - and with the Artists Prize at Tallinn Music Week festival under her belt, Maarja self-released her second album “Une Meeles” (In the Hold of a Dream) in 2016. The record was released to widespread international critical acclaim. Since then Maarja has toured as a solo performer throughout Europe and North America.
Later in 2016 she began to hone in on the less folky aspects of “Une Meeles” and began collaborating with Hendrik Kaljujärv aka Ruum, an electronic musician whose input provided a complementary, if often abstract framework to Nuut's atavistic melodies. Ruum's soundscapes might initially appear to offer a more grid-like sense of logic, but upon closer inspection the structures he creates are far more fluid and nebulous, pushing the listener into contemplating altogether more mysterious afterworlds and interzones. 
The duo has been touring and recording together over since 2017. Their first album will be released later in 2018, under the UK label 130701.
