WATCH AND LISTEN: Zetos at Viljandi Folk ({{commentsTotal}})


The popular trad band Zetos performed on Saturday night at the country's premier folk music/crossover festival in Viljandi.

Purveyors of a style that could be described as leelo with power chords, merging rock, pop, punk and folk, the Zetos (officially Zetod in the Estonian plural) all trace their roots to the Seto region in southeastern Estonia.

Featuring Jalmar Vabarna, Matis Leima, Jaanus Viskar, Artur Linnus and Martin Kütt on a variety of conventional and regional instruments, the band owns the audience record at the festival, which was held for the 22nd time this year.
