TUE 14 Aug, 4.00pm Duo Vildá
Duo Vildá combine yoik, swinging rhythms and improvisation in fascinating ways, drawing on both modern pop music and Finnish folk music. Yoik-singer Hildá Länsman won the Risteys [Crossroads] award for her wonderful voice at Finland’s first Ethno Gala in 2017. Viivi Maria Saarenkylä is a young accordion virtuoso who has done well in international competitions and was named Accordionist of the Year in Finland in 2018.
