Ville Ojanen is a crossover violinist/composer from Finland who battles with
the folk tradition to create new sounds and ideas. Ojanen is a musician who
could be characterized as a chameleon in the field of Finnish folk music. During
last twenty years he has led his music into several new directions.
Ojanen plays his fiddle like a Finn but creates his music out of various styles of world music and shapes it into a personal music of his own.
In this musical soundscape traditional acoustic instruments are in interaction with modern technology of our time. Together they create a contrasting tension which very well characterizes the nature of Villes? music.
In one moment the colors of Ojanen?s fiddle and viola are arctic and archaic but in the next they turn beautiful like the frosty night of March in the wintertime of Finland. When this noble sound of string instruments is supported by male voice from Finnish forests the answer is Ville Ojanen.
