Live In Studio: Sattuma

Sattuma via Facebook

"Sattuma" translated from Finnish means "hitting the mark" as well as "chance, happenstance". Sattuma is one of the most well-known folk bands to hail from Karelia - the republic shared by Russia and Finland.

The band formed in 2003 in Petrozavodsk, Russian Karelia, and tours extensively, including a long history of performances around New England.  They play neo-folk - both traditional songs and melodies and their own material in folk style with original arrangements - and perform in Finnish, Russian, and Karelian. Sattuma recently joined Folk Show host Kate McNally in studio to perform their particular brand of folk music.
