Talking Finnish music

Hello, is here somebody who likes finnish music?

Music of Finland - Wikipedia

For me it's very original and funny language. I enjoy sound of finnish music although I don't understand.
I put this thread to general music because I like many genres of finnish music - rock, folk, world-music, metal, pop-rock...
Yeah, I am crazy about music in many foreign languages, they are for me like another music instrument. Is here some similar crazy person?

Here are some finnish bands with links to MySpace...

Viikate (metal)

Värttinä (folk, world-music, ambient)

Zen Café (rock, alternative, indie)

Indica (pop-rock)

Rajaton (a'cappella, pop + band who made a'cappella cover versions of ABBA and Queen)

Club For Five (a'cappella, pop)

Lauri Tähkä & Elonkerjuu (folk-rock with pop elements) - they don't have MySpace

If you don't know and want to try sound of finnish language, here are some examples...


Zen Café




Lauri Tähkä & Elonkerjuu

Yeah, maybe it is strange, boring or too pop for you but I just only try if here is somebody who likes finnish music too
Take whatever comes to you 'cause time flies...

I only know Hedningarna (Swedish and Finnish):

"Lullabies for adults / crossed by the years / carry the flower of disappointment / tattooed in their gloomy melodies."

Finish Free Folk is probably one of my favorite genres of the last decade, There's a small collective of artists in Finland going for this approach in music and it seems exclusive to Finland atm.
