Zäpämmät is a duo of two women musicians – a fascinating combination of the characteristics of a coy young summer girl and a bellowing adult woman. Marjo Smolander and Pauliina Kauppila were inspired by the different ways of producing sound both with their own voices and with instruments and began to reconstruct Marjo’s compositions anew, Marjo on her Finnish kantele and Pauliina her hands and feet occupied by all kinds of imaginable sound-producing devices. In this way Zäpämmät brings the audience their beautiful and rugged songs and music.
