Rising stars of Finnish folk-hop, Tuuletar team up with Maija Kauhanen to give folk music an innovative and elemental twist. Tuuletar is one of the most exiting a cappella bands on the scene, and the world has noticed: two years after the debut gig of their first album at Budapest A Cappella they have already toured across the globe. Folk melodies sung in captivating voices receive beat-box support – they put the hip into folk. Maija Kauhanen is their true match in virtuosity and creative approach – the one-woman orchestra is the master of traditional kantele, and so much more. Her singing is bewitching, her playing is skilled and free, her lyrics deep. She tells tales of love, fate and power over unexpected polyrhythms. Their joint project offers yet another surprising Ritmo discovery: subtle and passionate, feminine – and very powerful.
