Suden Aika – Vocal folk
The unique sound and tonality of Suden aika (The Time of the Wolf) is created by the combination of four strong female voices.
Suden aika is the bearer of tradition – the age-old Finnish oral poetry reciting meets the music of today. Suden aika composes and arranges their music to lyrics that are based on the ancient Finnish lyrical folk poetry and draws its roots from the Nordic and Finno-Ugric folk music tradition.The Finnish poetical language is rich, colorful and beautiful; each listener is entitled to their own interpretation.
Suden aika is primarily a vocal group but the band also uses various musical instruments, such as different types of Finnish Kantele, Swedish Mora-harp, long wooden flutes and percussion.
A new album Sisaret (Sisters) was released in March 2018 by German label Laika Records.
