Female Choir KYN and folk group Juurakko are hands-on in earth, all the way to the very roots that can be found there.
KYN takes you to the Roots with the name track from their album Outo Kantele – the Odd Kantele (Alba Records), published in March 2018. Jukka Linkola has formed the texts heard in Outo Kantele -series from traditional Kalevala folk poetry and brought it together with courageous cabaree feel, strong, even theatrical expression and a pinch of jazz-like sweng. The work looks straight to the future via the past, when the old texts meet the new and fresh tonal language. the choir is joined by accordion artist Johanna Juhola and pianist Kirmo Lintinen. The choir is directed by Kaija Viitasalo.
Juurakko combines root music and powerful storytelling with crossing Finnish language blues-singing to traditional instruments with rakish skiffle-attitude.Rough Juurakko-blues takes you from time to time to depths of a bog and then to a cruiser deck dance ball. The group crosses musical borders with joy and doesn’t hesitate to have their take even on the most whimsical stories.
