But we try to learn old songs to understand the tradition and create new songs and melodies to give the ideas of our generation to the next one. Most of the songs that we sing are folk songs called "regilaul" but there are also our own songs that sound very much like estonian folk songs. Regilaul is a traditional way of singing with a foresinger and a choir repeating the words. Sometimes folk-songs get a new life in our interpretation. We are also using some instruments, such as drums, Irish whistle, jews harp, bagpipe.
We love to sing our songs in natural environment, in nature, in a pleasant atmosphere but also in the halls with good acoustics. When choosing the songs, we pay a lot of attention on the message that they carry. The song must come from the bottom of the heart and should be given to the audience with great joy. We create strong ties with the past singing old songs in modern view and explaining our own thoughts through the words and sounds of our ancestors.
