The Kaisa Ling Thing: A Plug Ugly Man

Estonia’s best (albeit the only) feminist vaudeville blues band The Kaisa LingThing presents humorous commentary on current events with the help of a collection of 100-year old songs. 


What you Americans now really need is a white Eastern European woman to come and teach you about your own history! Talk about another European Invasion...

After years of investigating classic female blues singers Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Ida Cox, Alberta Hunter, Chippie Hill and many others, the cabaret duo from Estonia have selected the best and most scandalous hits of historical vaudeville blues to hopefully preach to the choir. Dealing openly and humorously with taboos, classic female blues songs might have been written yesterday!

The Kaisa Ling Thing (Kaisa Ling on vocals and percussion, Rene Paul on the piano) present an hour of songs and stories about sex, racism, domestic violence and female emancipation – all through the humorous crooked lens of allegory. 

Reviews:

“All in all, an educational and refreshing listen. Among other things, the Kaisa Ling Thing reminds us that blues history is not just a long line of men competing with each other on electric guitars as we tend to imagine. The same is true for the blues of those brilliant women who, in their pursuits, were far ahead of their time and practices.”

"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." Vilja Kiisler, journalist
