Turkka & Paalanen "Halituli

Dear listener,
Our musical path together begun in the early 21th century. In September 2001 we were presenting the Sibelius Academy Folk Music Department at the Eurofolk Conference of the young European folk musicians in Italy and our future together as a Duo was sealed.

Nowadays we play Finnish and Nordic traditional tunes with joy and a delicate response. Our repertoire includes also our own compositions. We let the ardent sentimental mood to combine in our original musical humour. In arrangements we always try to leave the door open for the creative lunacy and the impulses of a moment. Our firstling album was made in accordance with the style of the band, in the spirit of a jam session. Some of the tunes were recorded from the first take and no "wrong sounds" were patched up in afterwards
