Heinavanker Vocal Ensemble

We had the pleasure of seeing the Estonian vocal ensemble Heinavanker perform here in Flagstaff on Monday. Lovely music that delves into early Estonian sacred music and folkloric song. I was intrigued to discover that several of their pieces included overtone singing (often called throat singing). I was also interested to learn that Heinavanker's composer and artistic director, Margo Kolar, is the head of the Electronic Music Studio at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre.
