Tallari – Etno-Espa
From their home at the cradle of pelimanni music, the Kaustinen-based folk music ensemble Tallari has kept the Finnish root music flame burning for 35 years, giving a new lease of life to archival treasures as well as creating new work. Tallari’s constantly evolving repertoire covers a wide range of Finnish folk music, with a focus in Western Finnish fiddle-based traditions, and includes evergreens from the Kaustinen region, the group’s own classics as well as new compositions.
