Tellu Virkkala / Ville Kangas / Rasmus Lyberth / Kristian Blak
Piniartut (Tutl Records)
This powerful recording was produced by Tellu working with musicians from Finland, Greenland, Faroe Islands. Using themes of hunting and fishing as the core of the project, they move into an incredible circle of deeply ancient and wildly modern musical territories. Tellu's vocals are essential, but the entire ensemble achieves a critical mass with bouzouki, piano, cow bells, various percussion, sound effects (sampled and vocal), and many layers of voices.
The Fishing Trap
The Pike of Death
Deep Inside Myself
Piniartut means "the hunters" and this ensemble seeks and finds new music in the ancient roots. Moving from rich, quiet and sublime ambiance to almost vicious strands of noise, the Piniartut find what they were looking for: originality. - CF

Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
