Hedningarna (translates as "Heathens"): I just discovered this Swedish/Finnish band. This track from the early 1990's blends Saami "joiks" (a kind of sung chant) with Finnish singing which (I think, judging from the rhythms and limited scale used) is roughly in the traditional style which has been used for centuries to pass on their folk tales. Finland is much more in touch with its oral tradition than we are, as their great national myths were only collected and written down for the first time in the nineteenth century, principally in the "Kalevala", an epic tale of shamans and spirits. Anyone from Finland care to add to or correct any of this, or tell us what the girls are singing here?

Thanks for posting!
It's a band I like, but that I've heard little of the last decade. But you kicked me into action again:
Must . Search . CD . Shelves.

As to the lyrics, this is what LyricWikia says:

Oh thou Ukko and thou Akka
Weavers all of winds and weather

Pray I do to a black man
Raise a wind and make it whirling

Raise a wind and make it whirling
Make a gale that's great and growing

Tear up tar stumps off the roadside
Pull the pine trees off the lake shore

Break the tops of giant oak trees
Crash their robust roots to splinter

Rise thou wind to blow and bellow
Gust and gale to whirl all over

Rise thou wind to blow and bellow
Rage and rave, thou angry weather,

Blow thou wind through more than six years
Rage through summers more than seven

Rapids rise to rush in torrents
Aged waters to run swiftly

And thou self rush like the rapids
And prevail without a hindrance

Pray I do to a black man
Raise a wind and make it whirling

Raise a wind and make it whirling
Make a gale that's great and growing
The laws of funny is not swayed by physics

...or logic
...or grammahr

...or spelling
