Fierce energy, beatbox rhythms and other-worldly harmonies: TUULETAR is taking Finnish music abroad with a novel approach. The band’s singers create a sonic landscape, where beatbox rhythms meet Finnish tradition and global influences. With freshly invigorating original music Tuuletar enchants audiences globally with their heartfelt, tribal and captivating spirit.

Tuuletar’s (Goddess of The Wind in Finnish mythology) second album Rajatila / Borderline was released in May 2019 by Bafe’s Factory. The album was produced by Pekko Käppi and it has already gained raging reviews and has been playlisted on radio shows all around the world. The band’s debut album Tules Maas Vedes Taivaal (On Fire and Earth, In Water and Sky, Bafe’s Factory 2016) won the prestigious Finnish EMMA award (the Finnish equivalent to the Grammy Award) for the best ethno album of the year.
