In the North: Talam

This journey starts out in Lapland, where we learn about the joik, an ancient form of expression which still holds a magic function. Rather than being sung for an audience, it serves to conjure up people or things. Through a narrow inlet, we reach Finland where the entire countryside is imbued with the Kalevala and its myths. Here one can still hear the echoes of curses and incantations present in the ancient melodies, and the magic sounds of the kantele. We feature bands that have become famous abroad, such as Frifot, Väsen and JPP, whose music reflects their country's tradition. There are also interesting personal accounts and stories, among them some biting statements from the famous novelist, Arto Paasilinna.
