Lähtölaulu – Song of Departure takes the acoustic trio of Jimmy Träskelin (vocals, harmonica), Katri Haukilahti (fiddle, vocals) and Sampo Korva (guitar, vocals) through a musical journey into the busy years of Finnish-American immigration. Lead by the legendary song anthology Reisaavaisen laulu Ameriikkaan released in 1982, the trio’s new program studies not only the immigrants’ feelings during departure and settlement in the new country, but also gives a heartfelt voice to those who were left behind.
