This a fairly new song written by Aino Ruotanen who is singing and playing a Finnish string instrument called 'kantele'.
Aino & Miihkali Jaatinen are a musical couple who played this tune with a well known Finnish percussionist Anssi Nykänen.

For me this song is a very mesmerizing combination of talent and virtuosity where all members are listening to each other and let the song lead their playing. I think at times Miihkali is playing his banjo like a piano on some movie soundtrack. 


Tis made me very happy so I wanted to share it with others.

The video was made by Jussi Turunen.

Very pleasant!  I would call this “high-end coffee house music”. Very relaxing.
Cheers!
