One of my favorite records. This little ep might appeal to fans of Carl Orff/Gunild Keetman Schulwerk records, or the Estonian jazz-folk-pop group Collage. A man with a neck beard named Veljo Tormis is at the helm. I don't think the record explicitly follows Orffian principles, but it sounds very similar -- lots of mallet instruments and singing in rounds. Cool medieval Baltic folk for the bellbottom set. Teeme Muusikat translates as something like "let's play music."
