Review: This Fenno-ethno prog classic from 1975 gets a much warranted reissue as Piirpauke's influence continues to grow. The band were real pioneers who were only founded a year before by Sakari Kukko. They immediately set to fusing traditional Finnish folk styles and ideas with a vast array of influences from Latin, Caribbean, Arabic and Asian scenes. This self-titled debut is a gorgeous album that will uplift and mesmerise in equal measure across 5 soaring suites of worldly jazz. "Legong" is particularly triumphant and enchanting, "Cybele" explores some psyched-out rock and "Konevitsan Kirkonkellot" is almost as epic as Alice Coltrane.
