Sinikka Langeland plays the Finnish national instrument the kantele and is also known for her use of folk song traditions such at runic singing and kveding (ode singing). It all comes together on The Magical Forest, an inspired concept featuring Langeland’s Norwegian-Finnish-Swedish Starflowers quintet together with the singers of the Trio Mediӕval. With their affinity for folk music and unique vocal blend, the vocalists adapt themselves ideally to Langeland’s sound world, at once archaic, timeless and contemporary, as they explore much older texts in a fresh cycle of songs built upon myths and legends. "It is inspiring to find traces and fragments of ideas about the world tree, axis mundi, in Finnskogen. I have transformed these and some parallel stories into songs that are encircled by instrumental passages and improvisations by the musicians ... every microcosm, every inhabited region, has a centre, a place that is sacred above all." - Sinikka Langeland

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
