Sowulo releases Grima!
A storybook put to music

Alex isn’t that much of a writer. But sometimes, when he feels something deeply, the words just pour out of his fingers. That is exactly what happened when he listened to Fæcele, one of the two songs featured on the Grima, the newest album of Sowulo that is now available as a digipack:

‘Every time Fæcele passes on our music stream, I feel so proud that we are allowed to play this beautiful song as our Monthly Marker. The build-up, the emotion, the depth of the song. Hearing all this I am so looking forward to the release of the grima Digipack (and to a campfire somewhere deep in the Nordic woods, but that is another story). I just feel that Grima will give us a chance to (in our minds at least) return to the world before Corona, where we all felt safe.
This song touches the extacy I felt hearing Heilung for the first time and I cannot wait to see Sowulo perform this live!’



High praise indeed! Want to know more about Sowulo’s latest release in a review written by our Cliff, as always just follow the link: LINK

Introducing the Nordic folk band Gói.

In today’s review, we introduce the music of Gói, a young historical folk project Ilona discovered while roaming Bandcamp. Gói, a band from South Ostrobothnia – a region in the southwest of Finland – combine the well known Nordic legends with the much less known Sami mythology in their lyrics and music, translating it into wonderful Nordic style soundscapes with-a-punch. Now it would be easy to say Gói are jumping on a style that is becoming more and more popular, but that would be highly unjust to these talented young musicians.
If there’s one thing I found while digging a bit deeper into the subject before writing this review, is that Gói are really interested in the history of their homeland. Just read the liner notes accompanying their single Saivo on Bandcamp, and you will find their genuine passion for the Sami history right there.

I had so much fun talking to Rauni Hautamäki, founder, composer, musician and singer of Gói, about the Sami traditions, their place in history, and the relationship between the early Scandinavian people and the Sami culture. Through it all, I found a huge interest in the subject matter, but also a huge respect for the cultures involved.

The music of Gói got me really involved in a part of Nordic history I didn’t know up till now, and I’m hoping that, by introducing this lovely band to you all, more people will get as interested in the subject as I got. Did I make you curious? Good, then just follow the link right here! You won’t regret it.
