Estonian band Haldi & ans Flamingo drops first single ‘Meile Kahele’

Haldi & ans Flamingo breathe fresh air into the estrada music movement of the bygone Estonian 70s era. Led by fairytale-esque singer Haldi, this 10-piece group gives the genre new life. “Meile Kahele” exemplifies this in an uptempo disco fashion. The title translates to “For the two of us” and invites lovers to enjoy themselves to the fullest. It’s the lead single from an upcoming début EP Õige Aeg out later this year digitally and on vinyl via Funk Embassy Records.

Songwriting duties are filled by Haldi herself as well as bassist-producer Mattias Tirmaste. Excellent sensibility is needed to do something authentic in the funk-soul-disco-jazz styles. A lot of it has been done. Since Haldi is a scholar of Estonian female artists like Marju Kuut, Els Himma and Velly Joonas – she has got the right recipe. So, Haldi & ans Flamingo deliver something for the fans of Funk Embassy‘s Groove of ESSR compilation series. It’s an extension of Estonian Soviet era into the free world where a woman can sing about sex and love!

“Meile Kahele” out digitally on May 10th 2024 via Funk Embassy Records
