Mara Kiek toured with Perth's Eastwinds in Melbourne for Musica Viva in Schools May 2019
In late May, Mara performed with Perth based 'Eastwinds' ensemble for their inaugural Musica Viva In Schools tour of schools in Melbourne's metropolitan region. She replaced 'Eastwinds' singer Kristiina Maalpas, who was in Estonia having her new baby boy (Congratulations Kristiina!)
 
'Eastwinds' also features Yoshitaka Saegusa on didgeridoo, Esfandiar Shahmir on daf and ney, and Mark Cain on reed instruments.

The show focuses on improvisation in traditional music from Estonia and Iran, along with original music composed and improvised by the ensemble with participation from the audience members.
 
The tour was a great success and the Eastwinds show proved to be a winner with students and teachers alike.
 
Kristiina has now rejoined Eastwinds to continue their busy program of school tours for Musica Viva in Western Australia, starting with a tour of Geraldton and the Coral Coast later this month.
