For each of the Estonian folksongs featured, they have found an equivalent from the Baroque era, and where possible paired the songs. Thus Girolamo Kapsperger’s beautiful lullaby Filglio Dormi is paired with Lauliku lapsepõli, an old Estonian song about childhood memories. The traditional Une Sulased (Servants of Slumber) is carefully woven into Tarquinio Merula’s monumental Canzonetta spirituale Sopra alla nanna. The lyrics of both songs are about the darker side of sleep, dreams, and nightmares. Mike and Maarten are particularly fond of the arrangement for Kurb Laulik (The Sad Songster), essentially a song about tears and crying, delicately sung by Kadri while in the background Mike and Maarten play Flow my tears by John Dowland, both as an accompaniment to Kadri and as a distant memory to Oblivion Soave, their first album on Zefir Records. Project Laula! illustrates the broadening artistic strides they have made from playing Baroque duos to venturing into the great tradition of Arabic music and now releasing a conceptual album about the cycle of life. For that is what this project is about: life. Life in all its joy, misery, anxiety, glory and mystery - just like music itself.
