Fresh and flashy Finnish folk music!
Polenta, a wholehearted ensemble of three fiddles and one guitar, will knock your socks off with its thrilling and soulful renditions of both original and traditional Nordic tunes. The band’s debut album Kaustinen Turbo (released in August 2021) consists of music from the Kaustinen area, strikingly reworked and renewed. Their new material brings out their own voices as composers. The light-footed live performances of Polenta give out instantaneous energy, radiating the joy of music and togetherness!
Polenta’s innovative arrangements highlight the natural rhythms and lovely melodies of these traditional pieces, and their sound world extends to a grand cinematic feel, complete with angelic harmonies." -Amanda Kauranne/Finnish Music Quarterly https://kansanmusiikki-lehti.fi/
