Jos Ken Pahoin Uneksii - Pekko Käppi [2007]

Astounding amalgam of worldstopping psych folk blues pagan gospel from Kiila & Lau Nau stalwart Pekko Käppi. Voice of ages over jouhikko: Finnish horse hair lyre. 

I, Pekko, am a player of Jouhikko – the ancient Finnish-Karelian bowed lyre. My music has been described like this: "In his hands the rough sound of weaved horsehair strings are swaying between the foul and lovely – dirty and pure. The old songs of unwritten tradition, timeless and dark stories mediates in his mouth."


Visit Pekko's nest. Currently sharing live dates with Alasdair Roberts. Figures.
