Nice reviews in Bangkok Post and Scandinavian music magazine Lira. Also the tune ”Narinkka” is on the Lira’s covermount sample CD.
”Finnish musicians are also up for some experimentation. In Strange Lands is a weird and wonderful collaboration between Finnish musician Sampo Lassilia Narinkka and klezmer musicians. Although he’s a fine double-bass player, he also tries his hand at playing an egg slicer, a rubber boot, a garden rake, patent shoes and even books (really). With fellow hybrid-makers Alaksi Santuvuori (viola) and Harri Kuusijäarvi (accordion), this is a collection that not only surprises musically, but also narrates stories from people’s lives. Recommended for those looking for something different.”
