Curly Strings (Estonia)
Curly Strings is an acoustic four-piece band that draws its inspiration from their own personal heritage in the current Estonian cultural space, as well as American roots music. Fronted by the effervescent singer and fiddler Eeva Talsi, whose bouncing blonde curls bring to mind an Estonian Shirley Temple, Curly Strings bring their unique Baltic take to the acoustic music world in combining the familiar with the unfamiliar, having catchy heartfelt songwriting side-by-side with folk music aesthetics, making them an exciting act to look out for.Their newest album “Pidu meis eneses” (Festivity Within) was just released in May 2021.
Their introspective song, “Miks Sa Murrad Mind” is featured on our “Putumayo World Café” album. Talsi sings from the point of view of a picked flower, a metaphor for a failed relationship. “Why do you break me / And carry me indoors / Where my blossoms shall begin to wilt / Why do you break me / Take me away from my roots.”
