Arto and Antti Järvelä in Concert
Breath of Arctic Air  Finnish Fiddling Legends, cousins Arto and Antti Järvelä, are musicians hailing from the famous Järvelä family from Kaustinen, Finland.

"...far-reaching, soulful and intimate. Each piece is bright and visual, a mini-journey to some interesting and far away place. These are tunes worth listening to over and over again!"
Bruce Molsky

Growing up in a musical family means growing up with a respect for traditions and history. Arto's and Antti's musical focus resides naturally in Ostrobothnia (the eastern shore of the Gulf of Bothnia). Järvelä fiddlers have been fiddling in the front line of Ostrobothnian weddings for generations. Dance and ceremonial tunes are still a major part of their music. International travelling and jamming have influenced their music but one can still hear the connection to their roots.

As two of Finland's most talented folk musicians, Arto has represented Finnish culture in more than thirty-five countries. Arto and Antti have been making music together in different constellations for many years. Together they balance the authentic down-home Kaustinen style with contemporary flavors, character, charm and flair. A spirit-stirring and heady breath of fresh Finnish air!

Arto plays with JPP, Nordik Tree, Kaivama, Maria Kalaniemi, Erik Hokkanen & Lumisudet and performs solo.

Antti is known for his work with Frigg, JPP, Baltic Crossing, Troka and Kings of Polka.

The Arto & Antti Järvelä debut CD Os fera liluli (OARTCD8) was released 2013 and the duo has toured in Canada, Denmark, Norway and the United States.
