Get ready for the eighth edition of Tallinn Music Week (tmw.ee), which will dominate the Estonian capital’s cultural events from March 28 to April 3, and during which nearly 240 musicians from 33 countries will implement a broad programme of various musical genres. Brendan Jan Walsh of Belgium will kick off the opening party on March 31 with a classical music in the Tallinn Creative Hub or Kultuurikatel. Another event to attend in the Kultuurikatel’s newly opened Black Box is the Turntable Concerto by London-based cross-over composer Gabriel Prokofiev. This piece will be performed by the Glasperlenspiel Sinfonietta chamber orchestra of Tartu (Estonia) and DJ Mr Switch of the UK. The conductor will be Estonian-born American Kristjan Järvi.

A number of the festival’s performances will take place at some very unusual venues. The Seaplane Harbour’s maritime museum, for example, will be filled with electronic soundtracks by leading Moscow beat scene musician Pixelord and Polish house music band Matat Professionals. Make sure to visit the Club of Different Rooms in the Telliskivi quarter, Tallinn’s current epicentre of creative activity. The huge hall of this unconventional club is divided into several rooms, each with a different interior. Great live concerts take place there on a regular basis, while during the festival, the Estonian Funk Embassy will curate a night of goodtime funk and soul.

Those who wish to bring home truly meaningful souvenirs from Tallinn and gain an insight into Estonia’s design scene should visit the new Tali design store (Kotzebue tänav 33, Põhja-Tallinna linnaosa). It is located in the Kalamaja district, which is otherwise known as Tallinn’s “hipsterville”. The store owner is a designer and although the place is small, it feels quite cosy.  Here one will find carefully selected interior objects, toys, textiles, accessories and amusing design trinkets. A similar note of light-hearted humour also permeates the interior. In any case, your face is bound to light up in a smile once you enter the store, even if the weather outside happens to be cold and rainy.

Fabrik

Fabrik (Vabriku 6; fabrik.ee) is another new place to visit in the Kalamaja district. The restaurant has been popular among locals since its opening day and that is hardly surprising, since this establishment boasts excellent food, friendly prices and a Scandinavian interior that gains an added sense of personality from strategically placed vintage accents. Fabrik places emphasis on local and seasonal products, while its sumptuous cakes have justifiably gained fame and recognition. However, it’s advisable not to count your calories in this case!
