Värttinä feat. Paleface (FIN)

Värttinä feat. Paleface

What a combination! Värttinä, a contemporary folk music act founded in Rääkkylä in 1983, is internationally one of the most successful Finnish bands ever. Värttinä tells stories of the past and the present with a modern take of the old Karelian and Finnish folk music.

Paleface, a.k.a. Karri Miettinen is a Finnish rap artist and a verbal acrobat, who has performed both in Finnish and in English. In recent years he has incorporated the old traditional protest songs to his music and jabbed his sharp songwriting pen towards the sore spots of today's Finnish society.

This summer we will see and hear something amazingly unique as Paleface joins the marvelous musicians of Värttinä on the Ilosaarirock Festival stage. This show will be nothing short of verbal finesse, musical fireworks and sweaty shenanigans!
