Named after the Finnish goddess of the wind, the four young women of Tuuletar describe themselves as ‘vocal folk-hop’. They thrillingly combine ancient Kalevala poetry with contemporary beatboxing and gorgeous harmonies.
Their performances are energetic and unpredictable with a vocal dexterity that is breathtaking. It’s hard to believe that everything is done with the human voice. ‘It is rare to witness such an unashamedly fresh take on the folk tradition,’ said the organisers of the Budapest A Cappella Festival. This is their UK debut and we’re delighted to present this superb group at Songlines Encounters Festival.
Right now Tuuletar’s song Alku (The Beginning) is spreading all over the world as the theme music of the Game of Thrones DVD trailer. Their debut album ‘Tules Maas Vedes Taivaal’ (On Fire and Earth, In Water and Sky) was released in 2016 and rose right away to the Top 10 in European World Music Charts as well as Transglobal World Music Charts. The album has received raging reviews and has been playlisted on radio shows all around the world.
