Traditional Finnish Folk Songs
This video is a collaboration with Finnish Indie game developer - and musician - Sami Maaranen. His RPG game, UnReal World is strongly inspired by and based on Iron-age Finland and the "Kalevala culture". I play the kantele and Sami plays drums in this song, which is the opening song of the game. If you're interested, you can download a free copy of the game at: www.unrealworld.fi.
This song can be found in my book: I Sing To You: 100 Finnish Folk Songs and Tunes with Sing-able English Lyrics. The version in this book is a simple arrangement that includes the melody line, lyrics and chords.
This song, Kalliolle Kukkulalle (On the Clifftop) - which is beautifully animated by Saana Herranen - can be found in my book: I Sing To You: 100 Finnish Folk Songs and Tunes with Sing-able English Lyrics.
