Sattuma (Russia)

Folk Karelian music

9th February 2020 - 3 PM - 6 PM - Fateh Sagar Paal

Sattuma folk band comes from the NW corner of Russia, region called Karelia.

Ancient Karelia is a land of forests and thousands of lakes, border land between Russia and Scandinavia.

Sattuma’s mix of old traditional melodies and modern musical styles is well received everywhere the band has played.

Sattuma is formed in 2003 in Petrozavodsk, Russian Karelia, the band tours and travels actively.

The music of Sattuma stirs a lot of positive emotions in different corners of Russia, USA, Kanada, Finland, Scandinavia, Estonia,Germany and Bangladesh.

The band plays in concert halls, clubs and festivals such as Music of the world in St.Petersburg,Russia; Finnfest in USA and Canada; Liet international in Netherlands; Kaustinen, Folklandia, Faces and Kihaus in Finland, Dhaka international folk fest in Bangladesh etc.

Sattuma performs neo-folk - both traditional songs and melodies and their own material in folk style with original arrangements. The language of the songs presents dialects of Finnish, Karelian and Russian.

The instrumental arsenal of the band is rather rich and includes strings: violins, bouzouki, kantele, jouhikko, bass; and wind instruments: clarinet, bagpipe, shepherd's flutes, chipsans, mankeri, didgeridoo, as well as accordion, harmonica and jew's harp.

Since there are fewer musicians than instruments, the variety of sound is guaranteed! There is enough mood and drive too!

The word SATTUMA translated from Finnish means "hitting the mark" as well as "chance, happenstance".

Now Sattuma's line up is:

Arto Rinne – vocals, buzuki, accordion, kantele, harmonica

Dmitry Demin – clarinet, folk flutes, bag pipe, jew's harp etc.
