    Im interested in hearing some good Finnish folk music, with similar elements and instrumentation to the folk elements Moonsorrow incorporates into their songs. I already have heard Tenhi and I think they are very good, but not exactly what i'm looking for. Also a band called gjallarhorn from Finland that was more what I was looking for. So...any takers? Lay it on me.

    Something very very folkish: Värttinä (female vocals in Finnish).

    I listened to about 10 mp3's on their site...some of it was pretty good some of it was really cheesy/poppy. I am looking for something more melodic than that. Thanks for the suggestion though!

    Kimmo Pohjonen http://www.kimmopohjonen.com

    He's a strange, strange accordionist. Has won the "Folk Musician of the Year" in Finland many times. Although his music isn't really the purest folk anymore. It's more like electronic-ambient-neofolk, or something like that ;)

    I really recommend checking out this fellow. Especially Kluster and Kalmuk. The latter features fifteen members of a chamber orchestra, two percussionists and Kimmo with his accordion and voice.

    The sound samples are hidden behind the Recordings link.

    I love it when peoples replies blatantly prove that they didn't read the first post.

    I would like to thank everyone who mentioned Tenhi in this thread. I went to the Prophecy label's site and listened to 'Yota'. Fucking wow. Oh, wait. That doesn't even come close to showing my enthusiasm.


    FUCKING WOW.


    There... that's much better. This sounds like something Empyrium would do had they not disbanded. I'm floored.

    I love the way your little cute mind works :p.

    But something makes me bit worried... You mentioned everyone else with their real names but not mine :erk:. But it's okay since no one ever uses my real name here in UM (except ante).
