More About Today's Music

So it may a bit confusing as to why a 1/2 Finnish, 1/2 Swedish folk band would show up on a site that talks about Native American food and music.  The reason lies, in part, with the post I wrote yesterday about music from the top of the world.  I love juxtaposing these two tracks!  The reason that this is hear is the style of singing is so similar to Inuit throat singing--and yet it is from Finland, not Inuit territories--still--that's the top of the Mother Earth!  I've posted the song from yesterday below for comparison's sake.  BTW:  if you are interested in traditional music from Scandinavia, I suggest that you start with the Nordic Roots series.

This is the first in the series from Northside music.
