Korpiklaani jumped on stage with great fervor! The whole crowd joined in with alot of Hey! Hey! Hey! I had the best time in a long time and I am so lucky to have noticed they were in town so close to see in person. I think it was Kismet. It is wonderful to get to see a team of musicians that really know what they are doing. They quickly engaged the crowd and kept our attention to the end...unfortunately it had to end. So refreshing to meet people who believe in what they do. I bought the new album Noita so I can listen to and from work etc. I am hoping they visit Texas often. Although I do not understand the language yet, it was music to my ears to hear the beautiful sound of the language. It was a very special kind of magic! Thank you!
Just read this with eager interest and a big grin on my face, commemorating my own bliss at their live performance... :o) Currently I am digging into their lyrics and music, among other making use of the following great website: www.101languages.net/finnish/ Also, if you take a look at www.darklyrics.com/k/korpiklaani.html, you may find some translations, at least from older songs... But it's more fun to discover the meaning step by step in a learning process. Enjoy your kismet, niederhofer! Nähdään pian!
"O my brother, metal-artist,
Thou eternal wonder-worker,
Didst thou forge the magic Sampo,
Forge the lid in many colors?"
Thanks Nickles for the links. I let my son listen to the Noita album on the way to the library and surprisingly he had the same reaction to the music that I did. He talked to his mom about it later on with great excitement. I am getting interested in Joiking since I've learned that Jonne is a Joiker and I have been recently practicing throat singing just for fun. It takes alot of lungspace to keep it going.
