If you have an acquired taste for world music. Accapella choral music to be precise and from Estonia no less , then Veljo Tormis is where it’s at.

Did I say ‘acquired taste?’ This celebrated composer might taste like a bitter stout to the palate used to Coors Lite.

The genius of the man spans many decades and some of his works are truly heroic.

No, this is not dance music and your toes will be firmly implanted in your footwear. Veljo Tormis takes you on a journey much like the ‘Iliad and Odyssey’ of Homer.

‘ Forgotten people’ and ‘Litany to Thunder’ are such examples.

I’m a non-smoker but will partake occasionally with a fine Cuban. Very special.
