Tuttula Jenkka

Mikael Niemi’s book Popular Music from Vittula has been an inspiration to this humorous jenka. The book describes life in the upper Tornio River Valley, about 50 years ago, honestly and colourfully.

The world is changing, even in Pajala, and modern development is not always free of problems. The new challenges the old, but as we used to say here, that’s all right – no worries mate!

VisaNordica – The Sound of the Northern Lights Route

The stories behind the songs were collected by singer/artist/landscape architect Elina Söderström and singer-songwriter/producer Esa Rautiainen at Studio E-City, members also in the music group of VisaNordica. Our task in this project was to make songs with historical perspective. We hope You enjoy the musical journey along the Northern Lights Route with us!

Mikael Niemen kirja Populäärimusiikkia Vittulanjänkältä on ollut innoittajana tähän humoristiseen jenkkaan. Kirjassa kuvataan elämää ylemmässä Torniojokilaaksossa, n. 50 vuotta sitten, hienostelematta ja värikkäästi.

Maailma muuttuu, Pajalassakin, ja moderni kehitys ei aina ole ongelmatonta, uusi haastaa vanhan, mutta niin ko met pruukaamma sanoa täälä päin – ehän s’ole poka mikhään!
