Duo Emilia Lajunen & Suvi Oskala
Finnish five-string fiddle duo Emilia Lajunen and Suvi Oskala joined forces in 2010 with the aim of scouring the archives for great fiddle tunes to bring back into the light of day. The result proved so successful that, as well as continually finding traditional gems to polish, they’ve inspired composers like Mikael Marin of Väsen and accordionist Johanna Juhola to write pieces especially for them, expanding the style of energy-laden chamber folk that they have made their own.
Their first album ‘Tyttörinki’ was released in 2012 and their second album ’Piilokisa’ by Nordic Notes 2018. In 2019 they were selected to play a WOMEX official showcase from over a thousand applicants. During their career they have actively performed at various stages in Finland and abroad in the Nordic countries, India, China and South Korea.
