The band VÄGILASED (The Mighties) first came together in 2000. Those young, college-trained musicians – graduates from Viljandi Culture Academy – come from diverse backgrounds, their artistry encompassing traditional music, jazz, rock, pop and other forms of expression with apparent ease.
VÄGILASED has a unique sound: their music is based on Estonian traditional music – they play regi-songs, playsongs and older instumental music with arrangements that pass through different genres, blending traditional melodies and rhythms with modern harmonies and styles; merging human voice tones, natural instruments and contemporary soundwaves in which easiness and difficulties, happiness and sadness, new and old way of thinking are mixed.
