Hedningarna Their album Trä is my album ofvthe 90s, and yes, I was also more than just excited about Nirvana, but even they cannot touch this record. When I first heard a track on the radio I was hooked. It was the opening track from their second album Kaksi!, Finnish for two. But it's their third album that was my first encounter on album length (this were the 90s, the internet was not yet as omnipresent as it is today, international shopping was still something where you needed to know the right mailorders or buy a lot of CDs at festivals, such as Rudolstadt Featival): Trä, Swedish for Three is an albhm that went on most heavy rotation for a few years to come. The titles of their 2nd and 3rd album alone show a lot of their humour and open approach to folk. And what an outstanding album Trä is! It still does blow me away, these many years later. And from that album Tuuli is the quintessential Hedningarna track for me: Swedish folk band meets Finnish singers and this track features yet another layer, the Sami Joik artist Wimme, plus historic Joik recordings. This is greatness on so many levels. Hedningarna are still active, they have made a whole album with Wimme, and more. Though I wish they'd do another album, but as someone who cannot read the apropriate news due to the language barrrier there may be a lot that I just don't notice.
