Kutse Tantsule
by Ullar Jorberg
Ullar Jorberg (1941 to 2018) was an Estonian singer. Ullar Jorberg was born in Tartu, Tartumaa, Estonia, on June 9th 1941. While still attending school, he took up singing in a mixed choir and joined a vocal group. Before entering his compulsory military service, he had studied physical education at the University of Tartu for a year, and his proper career as a singer began in a Tartu restaurant in 1967 - one of many he would visit to entertain the clientele on behalf of the owners. He also appeared in variety shows in Kaunas, and released dozens of records during his lifetime, totalling performances of more than 600 songs. His style was dominated by 'dance' music, and among his best-known songs were "Mereranna Tuul", "Kutse Tantsule" (featured here), "Suur Ahv", "Selline Elu", "Mambo Mererannas" and "Tantsin Kogu Elu", as well as many more. In 2017 he and his wife Ester, plus an uncle, directed the Estonian radio programme "Suur Lounamere Armastus" on the country's 'Raadio 2', though this was followed immediately by his announcement of his retirement from music, with his last major performances ocurring during the 2018 Ollesummer open air music festival in Tallinn as well as the two-day Haapsalu Jaanitul festival. He had featured in a documentary about his life in 2014 called "KolmeDOK: Jutustus toelisest Jorbergist", which was broadcast on 'TV3'. Ullar Jorberg died due to an unnamed health disorder in Tartu on December 26th 2018, aged 77. [ Translated from: http://menu.err.ee/887716/suri-laulja-ullar-jorberg ]

† REST IN PEACE †
Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
