    Kati Ran’s Nordic Folk Music with Historical Instruments



    Kati Ran (formerly L.E.A.F) is a folk musician from the Netherlands who brings historical instruments and text to life in a new way with her voice.

    From Kati Ran’s Bandcamp:

    Scandinavian sounding melodies, ritual and Norse poetic texts and historical instruments make RÁN a surprising new folk musician on the horizon. RÁN’s music combines Kati Ran’s clear, warm voice in combination with powerfully sung vocals. RÁN plays historical instruments, such as the nyckelharpa, hammered dulcimer, Kraviklyra, overtone flutes, skindrum, and Finnish kantele.

    Kantele is one of the most beautiful sounding instrument (still difficult to play ... max. 30 strings). It sounds bit like harps, but it has its own unique, someway crystal sharp sound but at the same time ''sad'', ''longing'' and ''melancholy'' sound. Fits very well for Finns.

    ''Suurin'' is a superlative and means Greatest or Biggest.

    ''Terveh'' is old form of Terve = Hi or Hello

    Never though that any Dutch would try to go to sing Finnish, even the very ancient form of it. Not a easy task.
    No doubt, the Viking songs have been easier for her ....
