Trad.Attack! is a real dance-along turbo-Nordic-folk band which brings back the energy, purity and sincerity of Estonian folk music. The three members are gorgeous Estonian bagpiper Sandra Sillamaa, funky guitarist Jalmar Vabarna and shrewed drummer Tõnu Tubli. 

The trio elegantly unites its complex-free approach, magnificent sense of the legacy of the past and modern technical solutions into a symbiosis.

The newest band in Estonian music scene has had a very warm welcome from audience and critics ever since their debut concert in March 2014 during the Tallinn Music Week where with their new approach and fresh energy they bewitched hall full of people. Since then their tunes have been on radio playlists.

Helen Sildna, the organiser of Tallinn Music Week says: “Trad.Attack! is like a fireball, like fresh grapefruit juice, they turn the life on – you should have it every morning!” 

The synergy of the three blazes brightly and it is possible that Trad.Attack!’s vital debut album, fitting precisely into the 21st century, marks the birth of a new generation in Estonian folk.
