Katariin Raska is a multi-instrumentalist musician based in Tallinn, Estonia. The source of her music lies with the musicians and stories that she has discovered while studying at the University of Tartu's Viljandi Culture Academy (where she focused on traditional Estonian folk), the Norwegian Academy of Music and the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. During her time in Norway, Katariin began exploring the extended possibilities of soprano saxophone and Estonian bagpipes (torupill). Inspired by free improvisation, she formed a collective called CULLE in 2015. Katariin is also an active parmupill (Estonian mouth harp) player, exploring traditional as well as self-composed tunes for dance.
