The present can’t be understood without knowing the history. That’s the case with Värttinä’s album “Miero”, released in 2006. On the album, the band goes towards the new, partly forgetting its traditions, partly revising and partly respecting them. By the time of recording, the band has had its exciting consistency for so long that it’s able to do it. The past isn’t a chain weighing them down, it can inspire the band to something new that only Värttinä knows.
