Värttinä Vocal Trio Finland
Värttinä Vocal Trio
Their most recent album, Viena, returned them to their deepest roots in the ancient folk traditions of Karelia
Finland’s premier folk band have been thrilling audiences for more than three decades with their unique vocal harmonies, exhilarating rhythms and imaginative acoustic arrangements.
Over the years membership of the frontline of three female vocalists has fluctuated and the current iteration finds founder member Mari Kaasinen joined in by Susan Aho and Karoliina Kantelinen, with Matti Kallio on accordion and keyboards.
Varttina showed their diversity when they collaborated with A.R.Rahman to compose the music for the stage production of Lord of the Rings, but their most recent album, 2016’s Viena, returned them to their deepest roots in the ancient folk traditions of Karelia.http://nordischerklang.de/vaerttinae-vocal-trio/
