Katariina KiviEE

Artist, member of Duo Ruut

Katariina Kivi is one half of Duo Ruut.

Duo Ruut sound ties together a single Estonian zither and two distinct voices. Inspired by the Estonian heritage, they draw influence from both the beliefs of different cultures and their own contemporary and emotive songwriting. Their music is minimalist at its core but packed with new and imaginative ideas.

In a short period of time Duo Ruut has toured around the world at prestigious festivals (Womex, ESNS, Celtic Connections, Trans Musicales, PIN, TMW, Stimmen Festival, du Bout du Monde etc). Last couple of years has brought them concerts in more than 20 countries around the globe. Their music has been supported by international media such as MOJO, KEXP, BBC, Songlines, The Arts Desk, Louder Than War, FIP Radio, RFI, Culturebox TV France etc.

Duo Ruut performs at Tallinn Music Week on April 6, 22:35 at Club of Different Rooms.
