Featuring Sara Pajunen, violin & vocals, and Teija Niku, accordion & vocals.
Ancestors of Sara Pajunen and Teija Niku lived within hours of each other in western Finland - speaking the same language, playing the same music, living the same culture. In the late 19th century, Pajunen's ancestors immigrated to northern Minnesota; Niku's family remained in Finland. Today, they explore a common heritage in Finnish folk music, even as they create new sounds that reflect their contemporary cultures and various interests.

Pajunen is a violinist and Niku an accordionist; their lithe instrumentals and beautiful vocal harmonies in both Finnish and English demonstrate how gracefully traditional and modern folk music can speak together.

Part of a release-tour of Aallotarís second album ĎAmeriikan lauluí (Song of America), released by German record label Nordic Notes.
