Emilia Lajunen and Suvi Oskala celebrated five years of their acoustic five-string fiddle duo in 2016! The ensemble’s sound varies between fragile and rich and the duo has often been noted to sound like more than two instruments. All in all their music suits all sorts of venues and is also easy to dance to!
Both of the duo are of the very best Finnish folk fiddling can offer. Their repertoire consists of traditional Finnish fiddle tunes which they have arranged with a twist. The music has been described as chamber music played rhythmically by two professional folk fiddlers. The latest additions to the duo’s repertoire are commission compositions by e.g. Mikael Marin of Väsen and Johanna Juhola.
Since the release of their debut album Tyttörinki in 2012 the duo has toured extensively in Finland and they have also performed abroad in Scandinavia, the UK, South Korea and India and are now getting ready to release their second album in the beginning of 2018!
“The duo combines their familiarity with the tradition with a strong individual voice while, refreshingly, playing without too many frills. The focus is on the music; on drive and rhythm.”
