Tuulerar enthrals audience in Krakow!

TUULETAR (Goddess of the Wind) – a Finnish vocal quartet, enthralled the audience in Romana Bobrowska Radio Krakow Studio. As befits an anniversary, the 20th edition of the EtnoKraków/Crossroads Festival has a prologue, during which it presents exceptional artists who warm up the audience for the great dose of ethno-fun.
The first concert in Poland was broadcast by air and on-line. Four completely different, strong and intriguing personalities, with one common trait – great sensitivity and musical talent. The Finnish quartet Tuuletar is one of the most original and admired bands that appeared on the international music scene in the recent years. 

The vocalists created a new, unique genre – vocal folk hop. Its uniqueness lies in combining Finnish source music with beatboxing, based solely on voice and its natural sound. Themes from Finnish mythology, as well as from the country’s folk music, gain a new dimension in the original compositions created by female vocalists, who imitate the sounds of nature, improvise lyrics and hypnotise their audiences with perfect performances and impeccable harmonies.

Another aspect that makes the audience succumb to the charm of the band from the very first minute of the concert is the interaction, both between the artists, their unique harmony and balance, which they achieve by complementing each other on the stage, as well as their dialogue with the audience – engaging and inviting to the world arranged by Tuuletar. The band presents music of the 21st century – original, based on exceptional skills, without resorting to proven formats, guided by intuition, served in a very aesthetic way and colourful – all in all, it is something much more than just another reprise of an existing score.

In the coming days, feel free to join us for the festival workshops taking place as part of the School at the Crossroads series: at the Seweryn Udziela Ethnographic Museum in Krakow (Monday and Tuesday from 6:00 p.m.), Ukrainian song (Sofia Herian) and Eastern Borderlands song workshop (Julia Charytoniuk), as well as traditional crafts workshop at ŻyWa Pracownia (Monday and Tuesday from 12:00 p.m.)

Next Wednesday will bring the  inauguration of the 2018 EtnoKraków/Crossroads Festival and the In Crudo stage at the Museum of Municipal Engineering. A celebration of outstanding voices: Alireza Ghorbani (Iran), Alim Qasimov and Fargana Qasimowa (Azerbaijan) and the Teofilović brothers from Serbia.
