Bells in the tower of Tartu Town Hall will chime the popular award-winning rap song "Für Oksana" by Nublu and Gameboy Tetris on September 1.
Music director of the bell tower Merle Kollom said the song does not sound exactly as it does in the original track.
"Setting "Für Oksana" on the bells has been the most difficult ever. I wanted to preserve something melodic like the syncopating beat between a song and a couple of notes, which Nublu and Gameboy Tetris perform very freely when singing," Kollom said.
"Für Oksana" will be played at Tartu Town Hall on September 1 at 3 p.m., 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. and in the September bell program at 6 p.m and 9 p.m.
"Für Oksana" won the title of the best song at the Estonian Music Awards 2020 awards gala.
In September, the Tartu bells will also play:
- "Tartu kellad" (Olav Ehala)
- "Meloodia" (Anton Rubinstein)
- "Vihmane Tartu" (Matis Leima)
- "Klokkenzang" (Jos D`Hollander)
- "Sonatine" (Sjef van Balkom)
