Irina Björklund & Pauanne - Sing, Girl 

(Official Music Video)




Castles were shuddering, lakes were trembling

Copper mountains were quaking

In the Thunder God's (Pauanne) blast and bluster,

His rumbling and roaring.

Janne Haavisto / Drums, percussions and archive tapes

Pagan spirits still slumber in the depths of the Finnish forests and Pauanne have set out to awaken them. The trio's archive research has unearthed a wealth of songs from the long-lost, non-Christian tradition of Finnish folk music; stories of spells and curses, the dreams of a shepherd, 17th century witch hunts and magical iron fences that repel invaders. Violinist Kukka Lehto and Tero Pennanen on Hammond organ and other keyboards, collect, arrange and further compose the repertoire while percussionist Janne Haavisto provides the rhythmic enhancement. 

Pauanne are fascinated by the "outrageous beliefs" of the past and its endemic prejudices, paranoia, fear of foreigners and persecution of women. In their songs and videos they show that these traits are still very much alive, just dressed in modern clothes.
