Finland, 2009, Finnish folk

SytykeTulipunapalsami: A beautiful, out-of-the-way album of kantele music performed by a sextet, but more importantly, performed in the near-extinct Saarijärvi style, which is plucking the strings with a wooden plectrum instead of using the fingers. A lovely mix of instrumentals, vocals, original compositions, and traditionals.
