VILDÁ´s music is a unique combination of mystic joiking, swinging rhythms and inventive improvisations. The sound is strongly influenced by the Saami culture´s close connection to nature, contemporary pop and Finnish folk. Hildá Länsman´s joiking melds with Viivi Maria Saarenkylä´s expressive accordion, taking us on a journey to the mountains of the north and on to the windswept tree-tops of Saami country.

Hildá Länsman – vocals, joik, percussion

PIIRAINEN | BLOM | COMPANY was born out of collaboration of two modern day musicians J-P Piirainen and Venla Ilona Blom who were craving for a deeper connection between folk music and folk dance. They combine acoustic guitar and beatboxing creating a totally new sound.
Despite using modern sounds and contemporary playing techniques, the company’s music is deeply rooted in traditional dance music and folk dance of Finland.
