Maris Pihlap live & party feat. TIKS DJs • Jazzkaar 2023
Maris Pihlap is a singer, producer and DJ from Tallinn, Estonia. Her journey started out as a promising folk fiddler, diving deep into Estonian tradition, but an injury put that dream on hold and led her to an alternative path instead. She taught herself to produce, started writing original songs and refining her skills by remixing other artists' music. Maris takes the listener on a journey where traditional music and jazz are effortlessly intertwined with electronic pop production. In her fantasy world genres don't exist, lines are meant to be crossed, and expectations broken.
Her debut-EP “What Have You Become?” was released by TIKS rekords, and gained immediate attention both locally and internationally. A year later it was followed by a full-length album “The Search for Life Within” that features collaborations with musicians and artists Both of the albums were nominated at the Estonian Music Awards in successive years 2022, 2023.
