HEINAVANKER is an early music vocal ensemble from Tallinn, Estonia. Their name is taken from the famous altarpiece of Hieronymous Bosch (1453-1516), which depicts a huge wagonload of hay rolling through the world, vexed by agony and greed, towards destruction. However, atop the hayload there sounds beautiful music. They have been performing together since 1996.

The repertoire of Heinavanker consists primarily of two styles: Estonian folk hymns and early European polyphonic music.

Heinavanker has performed extensively throughout Europe and the USA and this is their first concert tour of Canada.

Margo Kõlar, composer and the Artistic Director of the ensemble, is also the Head of the Department of Electronic Music at the Music Academy of Estonia.
