about

AALLOTAR (“exquisite, sophisticated chamber folk music”) is a transatlantic collaboration between Finnish-American violinist Sara Pajunen and Finnish accordionist Teija Niku, whose families once lived within hours of each other in the western regions of Finland. Using instruments traditional to Finnish and Finnish-American folk music and singing in both English and Finnish, the music of Aallotar pays tribute to Pajunen and Niku's respective cultures, which — although they pulsate with many of the same values and energy of 100 years ago — have grown apart. While Aallotar explores these differences, the music ultimately intends to create new harmonies that reflect the rejoining of sounds at once familiar and foreign.

Track Name: Syämestäni rakastan
Syämestäni rakastan sua elinaikani
Vaikka onkin turhaa jo kaikki toivoni
Et itse kyllä luvannut mua koskaan heittää näin
Vaan köyhyyteni tähden mä hyljätyksi jäin
Se rakkauven kipinä joka syttyi rintahan
Ei taia ennen sammua kun pääsen hautahan
Track Name: Lauluni laulun
If I close my eyes and sing a change occurs inside of me
I'm in a familiar world of songs I knew so long ago
Songs with soothing melodies like air through lungs or wind through trees
I'm a child who freely sings, I'm a child who's called back home
Ei oo ei ei oo, lauluni mä laulan
Ei oo ei ei oo, silmäni ummistan
If I close my eyes and sing each part of me will resonate
Resonate with the quaking leaves, the rolling cars, the humming world
No other voice is mine until the day I leave this world
But this voice isn't mine alone, for one shapes all as all shape one
Ei oo ei ei oo, lauluni mä laulan
Ei oo ei ei oo, silmäni ummistan
Track Name: Hiljainen suru
Hiljainen suru se nuoren likan sydäntä rasitteloo
Kun ei ole sellaista ystävätä, jolle sitä valitteloo
Pappa ja mamma ne huilaavat sen siunatun mullan alla
Minä vaan juon ja ajelen tällä lavialla maailmalla
Track Name: Jos voisin
If I could sing like a bird can sing, if like a lark I could only sing
I'd raise my voice to the golden one to sooth the longing that fills my heart
If I could fly like a bird can fly, if through the air I could only fly
Then I would fly to the golden one to dry the teardrops that fill my eyes
If I could build like a bird can build, a quiet nest in that forest build
Then I would ask that golden one to keep me safe from a world of storms
So can I sing like a bird can sing, can I sing like a lark can sing
Can I freely fly through air and build a nest when the storms appear?
Track Name: Hellulaulu
If I close my eyes and sing a change occurs inside of me
I'm in a familiar world of songs I knew so long ago
Songs with soothing melodies like air through lungs or wind through trees
I'm a child who freely sings, I'm a child who's called back home
Ei oo ei ei oo, lauluni mä laulan
Ei oo ei ei oo, silmäni ummistan
If I close my eyes and sing each part of me will resonate
Resonate with the quaking leaves, the rolling cars, the humming world
No other voice is mine until the day I leave this world
But this voice isn't mine alone, for one shapes all as all shape one
Ei oo ei ei oo, lauluni mä laulan
Ei oo ei ei oo, silmäni ummistan
Track Name: Temporary
Elo ihmisen huolineen ja murheineen, se on vain väliaikainen
Ilon hetki myös helkkyvine riemuineen, se on vain väliaikainen
Tämä elomme riemu ja rikkaus, sekä rinnassa riehuva rakkaus
ja pettymys tuo, totta tosiaan, väliaikaista kaikki on vaan
Our life with its worries and misery is as short as a summer's night
The moments of happiness cease to be like a bird flying out of sight
All the ways of life with their joy and pride and the love that burns somewhere deep inside
Our broken dreams, our hopes so high, they are all only passing by
And the fragrance that comes from the fairest flower disappears with the winds of fall
And the sweet days of youth only last one hour then they're gone from us once and for all
All the charms you find in your dearest one, all that tender beauty will soon be gone
All the days you smile and the nights you cry, they are all only passing by
Tämä elomme riemu ja rikkaus, sekä rinnassa riehuva rakkaus
ja pettymys tuo, totta tosiaan, väliaikaista kaikki on vaan
