New CD! Maria Kalaniemi & Eero Grundström: Svalan

Accordion artist Maria Kalaniemi’s album Svalan (Swallow), produced in cooperation with harmonium wizard Eero Grundström, will be released on 4.4.2017 at the JuuriJuhla Folk Music Festival in Espoo. On the album, the spiritual landscape of the Finnish-Swedes meets the awe-inspiring nature of Northern Karelia: a combination which can be experienced through both the music on the record and the photo-collage of scenes around Salonkylä which accompanies it. The music was recorded in Maria Kalaniemi’s childhood home, an old post-war house in the Kilo district of Espoo.
