Music Inspired by the Kalevala
I've been working on a series of songs inspired by the Kalevala, and hope to make videos of them.
Aino's reaction to being told she is to marry old Väinämöinen,
after her brother
Joukahainen loses a singing contest to him, is told in Rune 4 of the Kalevala.
I decided to experiment by including a rhythm track with this song, which comes from Rune 1 of the Kalevala and tells the story of Väinämöinen's Birth.
This song, which I call Sahri Maid comes from Rune 11 and it tells the story of Kyllikki's abduction by Lemminkäinen.
