Karelia - "Suomi Pop" {Finland} [1970] (hippie folk rock)

..armas nukarainen and liyana nyhtankolja are two leading finnish pop "pelimanni". they have tried on this long playing record to preserve the genuine sound and feeling of finnish folk music. they think that the people should be informed about how the melodies were performed in the good old years of finnish history. the finnish people have had musical arrangements of their folk songs in the classical music style (sterilized and dull) stuffed down their throats for hundereds of years..(review taken from the vinyl backcover)
some of the songs in this album remind me the taste of kebnekajse..a forgotten jewel from the past..happy listenings!
