Award-winning duo with a powerful and mesmerising work about loss, forgiveness and vanishing musical traditions

In the winter of 2016, Estonian saxophone player Maria Faust gets in a car with her fellow Copenhagen resident Kira Skov. They have a goal. In the very southern part of Estonia, close to the Latvian border, there still exist a unique folk music tradition, delivered through generations despite suppression and modern cultural uniformity. Songs that are still alive, albeit just barely. Songs about loss, doubt, faith and forgiveness.

In an abandoned church, together with a band, choir and the American star producer Mark Howard, Faust and Kirkov create the music to In the Beginning. The album is a powerful collage, inspired by the dark history of the orthodox church, and a meditation over cultures that are about to disappear, where sacral, orthodox hymns blend with Estonian folklore and Western music traditions.

Kira Skov – vocals, Maria Faust – sax, Tobias Wiklund – trumpet, Ned Ferm – sax, Anders AC Cristiansen– bass, Jacob Højer – drums
