New! Estonian Song Celebration Video

This video was released recently and watching it moved me to tears.  It captures the essence of the song festival beautifully. Estonians may be known for their reserved and serious nature and their stubborn refusal to show their emotions in public but when it comes to the song festival, all that changes. Singing has been at the centre of Estonian culture for centuries; it's the heartbeat of the nation, the glue that unites all Estonians. This year will see record numbers participating at the festival, including the descendants of exiled Estonians who are now scattered all over the world.
