In 2018, the Republic of Estonia celebrates its 100th anniversary, as part of this milestone the whole country has begun its celebrations across the globe to bring out stories and hidden pieces of Estonian culture. In 2017, Estonia will be holding the presidency of the European Union Council focusing on many modern cultural preservation and economic topics within the EU.

As part of the multidisciplinary concert “Tonality of Culture” two Estonian-born artist Valev Laube and Diina Tamm present various dance and musical interpretations of old Estonian archive recordings dating back to the beginning of the 20th
century.

Through many of these recordings young artists across Estonia and globally try to reconnect with the pre-Soviet Estonian music and traditions to continue old and find new interpretations of traditional music.
