Värttinä is the crown jewel of Finnish folk/world music with history of more than 30 years. The band begun as a children’s project in the village of Rääkkylä in the Karelia region of Finland in 1983. Their international breakthrough followed the release of album ”Oi Dai” in 1991.

Värttinä’s trademark has always been razor-sharp harmonies sung by powerful leading ladies, currently the founding member Mari Kaasinen with Susan Aho & Karoliina Kantelinen. Värttinä just released their 13th studio album titled ”Viena”. The album was inspired by the trip the group made to the Viena Karelian folklore villages in Russia, where they had unique encounters with the last surviving rune singers in the region. These singers are the last living connection to a culture that is thousands of years old, and out of which for instance the epic Kalevala folk poetry tradition was born. During their journey, Värttinä enjoyed remarkable nature experiences, which have also inspired the album. The ”Viena album is a tribute to Värttinä’s Viena Karelian musical roots.
