Showcase artist at the Womex 2019 Opening concert
Archive recordings from 100 years ago will be heard as a part in music of Pauanne. They bring to the stage spells of Lappish healers, a sermon from Western Finnish prison, and cattle calls from Karelia. Beliefs both old and new have inspired music of Pauanne. Old folk beliefs have many practices that seem utterly outrageous. One might expect the advance of science and information to have weakened such beliefs. However, today's newspaper articles with their horoscopes and alternative therapies are not so very distant from the mythologies of the past.
