Description

iki opens with a tragically poignant a-cappella number 'Syllinen Syli' (Faithless Arms) which displays the beauty and purity of the female voices. 'Sepän Poika' shows off percussionist Jaska Lukkarinen's brilliant ability to punctuate with dry and spacious colours. Heartbreaking 'Morsian' allows stunning accordion player Markku Lepistö to reaffirm one's faith in tear-jerking melodies. His duets with fiddle player Lassi Logren send shivers down the spine. (Surely Lassi's bow is strung with silver?). And for a real treat try 'Nahkaruoska' or 'Leather Whip'. This is where the rhythmic energy of the Finnish language comes into its own and the whole band becomes a volcanic eruption of explosive fun and danger. Review - BBCi
