The female a cappella quartet were chosen for the quality and originality of their music. They are drawing on Finnish traditions in a new and innovative way, but they were also selected because they are absolutely export ready. Indeed they’ve already performed in many countries in Europe (including Germany, Hungary and the UK) and as far as India and Japan. They’ve also had their song ‘Alku’ used in the fantasy TV megahit, Game of Thrones. Their management team and record label, Bafe’s Factory, are very active and effective in promoting their music. Tuuletar are a young band with great potential and we hope the Ethnogala’s Border Breaking award will help spread their name internationally.
TUULETAR is a vocal performance group, consisting of four diverse women from Finland. Tuuletar takes influences from all around the world, inspired by sounds from American hip hop to South Asian folk, all while keeping their feet strongly rooted in Finnish language and musical heritage. With their freshly invigorating original music, they are pioneering the genre of Vocal Folk Hop, enchanting audiences globally with their heartfelt, tribal and captivating spirit.
In July 2015 Tuuletar dazzled in their breakout performance in at Austria’s Vokal Total competition, taking home the top honors among European pop vocal groups along with the Audience Favorite award. Their success in Austria lead to their headlining performances at Vienna’s Voice Mania 2015, the Budapest A Cappella Festival in 2016 as well as Budapest Ritmo Festival 2016. Tuuletar gave an exclusive radio concert in WOMEX2016 for the brand new concept of EBU LIVE SESSIONS, hosted by NRK and BBC.
Tuuletar released their debut album “Tules Maas Vedes Taivaal” in June 2016. The album rose right away to the Top 10 in European World Music Charts as well as Transglobal World Music Charts.
