Sinikka Langeland is a folksinger, kantele player and composer who lives in Finnskogen, Norway. After a ten-year association with the Grappa Musikkforlag label, for which she recorded Finnish folksong alongside the music of Bach, she is now recording her own compositions for ECM.
"A beguiling mix of folk music, sung poetry and ECM’s house brand of subtle improvisation."
