The second album of Kielo Kärkkäinen, Keitä me olemme (Who are we?), is a tale of struggle and fear in the midst of longing for continuity. These neo-folk songs in Finnish are presented by a combination of a singer, two guitars and a tenor sax. The music echoes also traces of theatre music and jazz.
