cd cover Ville Kangas
Suuri erehdys

Hallapuro -28°C
Miksi en saanut lapsena kuolla?
Vapauden aave

One of Finland's most innovative young musicians, Kangas has been something of an iconoclast, creating a new folk music outside of the usual folk routes of the country. He is an innovative artist who knows when (and when not) to depend on his roots for inspiration and sound development. This record is very contemporary while still richly colored by acoustic instruments and some great vocalists, much in line with his recent collaboration on the Piniartut project (in fact, there is a reprise of one of the songs from Piniartut on this one).

He is best known for his work with Prusikoukku and is currently the violinist with Iso Alanko Säätiö. Guests on this recording include Tellu, Antti Rintamäki, Ismo Alanko, Timo Myllykangas, Hannu Saha and others. He was part of the influential collaboration Piniartut in 2001.

Kangas plays violin, harmonium, bouzouki, bass, guitar, organ, synthesizer. His guests contribute kantele, percussion, bass, flutes, guitar and more.

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.
