Aallotar is a new, interesting duo, in which Finnish Teija Niku and American-Finnish Sara Pajunen play the accordion and sing in Finnish and English. The golden oldies of Finnish tradition have become adequately unruly as they’ve flown overseas, and found new aspects both in the song material and the soundscapes. The duo’s unpolished DIY attitude makes their debut, In Transit, a rough diamond – in just the right way. It will be great to see where this adaptable duo is headed.
