Memories of Home Live-stream Concert: Tiina Kiik with Tuulikki Bartosik
On Friday January 29 at 8 pm VEMU launches the online concert series "Estonian Music Week presents: Memories of Home."
This first concert is a virtual collaboration between accordionists: Canada's Tiina Kiik and Estonia's Tuulikki Bartosik.
The Memories of Home Live-Stream Concert Series embraces the duality of having roots in one country while starting afresh in another. In a global society characterized by immigration, many Canadians are familiar with memories that compete for the title of “home”. Such memories might be fleeting images or feelings deep down inside – vague or distinct – conjuring up an attachment to place.
In the current climate of reflection, such memories are more precious than ever. We asked artists to show us what memories of home mean to them. Together, we embark on a multi-disciplinary journey exploring the recollections of place through music, dance and film.
