Arto & Antti Järvelä
Cousins Arto and Antti Järvelä are musicians hailing from the famous Järvelä family from Kaustinen. Järvelä fiddlers have been fiddling in the front line of Ostrobothnian weddings for generations and nothing seems to get on the way of their musical virus.
Growing up in a musical family means growing in a respect for traditions and history. International traveling and jamming have influenced their music but one can still hear the connection to their roots.
Arto and Antti have been making music together with different constellations throughout the years. They also teach their music and traditions both home and abroad. Arto plays with JPP, Nordik Tree, Kaivama, Maria Kalaniemi, Ampron Prunni, Pinnin Pojat, Erik Hokkanen & Lumisudet and also performs solo. Antti is known for his work with Frigg, JPP, Baltic Crossing, Troka and Kings of Polka.
Now is the time for new adventures with this duo. I bet the Järvelä fiddlers will be in the front line for a couple more generations!
