Tuuletar has recieved first reviews for the brand new album “Tules Maas Vedes Taivaal”.

Robert Silvertein (US) from MWE3.COM wrote the following

“Among the most promising pop vocal groups in Finland and Scandinavia today—the modern girl-group sound of Tuuletar comes alive on their much anticipated first album Tules, Maas, Vedes, Taivaal. The eight song CD was superbly recorded and produced at Liquid 5th studios based in North Carolina. Visiting and performing in New York on the way back to Finland, Tuuletar can’t wait to bring their “Folk-Hop” sound —a cappella vocals all sung in their native Finnish—to the attention of music fans World Wide.”

Mattie Poels from musicframes.nl (NETHERLANDS) wrote the following:

“Tuuletar (Goddess of the Wind) really touches your soul. Whether you like this music or not, these four Finnish singers are amazing and have quality. With the same ease they sing solo, create beat-boxing, sing the bass, add effects, clap & stamp and even sing khoömei, the overtone singing as we know from Mongolia (in ‘Tuu Kerää‘). It sounds all so organic that you wonder if it really only voices you listening to. — Tuuletar are four solid singers who understand the art mixing voices to one blended sound, so you don’t hear four voices but one great band!”

Juha Seitz (FIN) wrote in a Finnish newspaper POHJALAINEN the following:

(translated in English)
“The sound art by Tuuletar breaths and lives with human voices… The flexible interpretations of their own compositions are fresh and sparkling. The harmonic elements are filled with fragile nuances and depth so Tuuletar deserves their buzz.”


Robert von Bernewitz (USA) interviewed Piia Säilynoja for a music blog.
