“. . . everybody understands the music of Myllärit, regardless of their nationality”

Karjalan Sanomat, Russian Karelia

“. . . majestic multi-colored wall of sound”

The Scotsman, Scotland

We had people in their eighties dancing with people in their thirties, five year olds standing on their seats with eyes wide open. A Finnish-American elder reminded me that this is ‘not toe-tapping music, it is knee-lifting music!’ Then, all at once, the audience went quiet as Tatyana sang an Old Russian ballad about lost love; there was clearly a deep visceral reaction amongst all of us.
