Our e a new album out now. “Radio Moskova” has been released in Finland with international release dates to follow. We celebrated our second full-lenght on Thursday 15.9. at Helsinki’s Savoy. The concert also featured soulmates Sväng.
“It’s amazing how just two musicians can create music this rich in texture. But there in lies their secret: the music stays organic all the way.”
– Mari Koppinen / Helsingin Sanomat
Markku Lepistö (accordeon) and Pekka Lehti (double bass) perform title song from upcoming album Radio Moskova. Release in Finland spring 2011, other territories summer/ fall 2011
“As a child I used to love to listen to my old tube radio. Back in the 70′s it was exciting to listen to radio transmissions from other countries, especially from the Soviet Union. The ambience of this composition is reminiscent of that of programs on Radio Moscow. During the 80′s I busted my radio by using it as an amplifier for my bass guitar when playing punk rock.” -Pekka

One of the discoveries of this year’s Womad festival, this Finnish duo create beguiling sound pictures from the unlikely combination of accordion and double bass. The sinuous interweaving of folk melody, jazz improvisation and touches of stately tango – a distinctively Finnish taste – adds up to an intriguing and atmospheric portrait of their home city.
Our last day at Womad NZ on March 2010 a film group came to ask if they could film us while we where playing. We found nice almost quiet place and started Helsinki song. They filmed and here is the result. Welldone by Film the music!
We just came back from Womad Charlton 2010. What a great festival it was indeed! Well organized festival with a good feeling with very intelligent audience.
We played there at BBC3 stage on Saturday and Charlie Gillet stage on Sunday. We felt very warm and open feeling on both concerts. Also we did a Taste of World on Sunday and that was real fun! There where People with good questions and we had a bubbling dialog with audience you while we did tasty Kesäkeitto with Roger and Gerard. During food making we played Vainajalan tango and Sarastus/Dawn, Markku did Silta/Bridge as solo. It would be nice to come back to Womad as an audience on next summer with our families.
Here is a recipe for Kesäkeitto
Kesäkeitto / Finnish Summer soup
4 – 5 portions
5 6 potatoes
2 – 3 carrots
2 dl fresh peas, green (or defrosted)
1 – 2 vegetable bouillons
5 dl water
5 dl milk (or 2 dl cream 3 dl milk, not skinny milk)
2 tbs flour
2 laurel leaves
piece of leak
10 black peppers
3 tbs butter
3 tbs shredded parsley
Recipe Cooking and Preparation Method
Wash and peel the potatoes and carrots. Slice the carrots and the leak, and cut the potatoes into not too small cubes. Wash and cut the cauliflower into pieces. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. Add the seasonings, bouillons and vegetables to the boiling water and allow to simmer for approximately 10 minutes.
Mix the flour together with the milk and stir into the soup. Allow the soup to simmer at a low heat for 10 more minutes. Afterwards, add the butter and shredded parsley.
. Food Serving Suggestion
Serve the Summer Soup hot together with slices of rye bread and butter.
Summer Soup tastes best when it is prepared from freshly picked vegetables in the early summer.
