Kopli Couture | Tallinn, HA
As seen at EDINBURGH FRINGE!
Estonia's best (albeit only) feminist vaudeville blues band presents their first English-language program.
A young woman born in independent post-occupation Estonia sings of the Soviet residue that pollutes the minds of some of her fellow countrypersons and restrains feminist progress.
They said it's impossible to combine blues and feminism; they were wrong.
They said you can't write a song about elder lesbian couples; they were wrong.
They said feminists are not entertaining and funny; they were wrong.

"If there's a name for a woman who's chic glamorous and modernly feminine in Estonia it's Kaisa Ling. And her Thing. Resistance is futile I recommend surrendering."
"Incredible vocals electric stage presence percussion and pizazz all accompanied by one of the best pianists l've seen playing live at the Fringe."
"Her show is brilliant and she's come all the way from Estonia so highly recommend you get to her while she's here! Cracking songs touching and inspiring"

Kaisa Ling is a force of nature who has been featured on all Estonian TV networks (ETV Kanal 2 TV3) and newspapers (Eesti Ekspress Öhtuleht Postimees Eesti Päevaleht). She's just returned from the recording of Voices of Mississippi road trip series in the USA and last year spent three months on board motoryacht Admiral Bellingshausen as the ship's cook.
Kaisa Ling Thing has released two LPs and one blues musical. They have toured their glitzy and flamboyant yet self-conscious and emotionally vulnerable vaudeville blues all over Estonia and are now taking on the world stage with their first English-language show.
