We can't stop listening to the wonderful voice of Pekko Käppi (Finland) singing a poem based on a version found in the Suomen Kansan Vanhat Runot (the Ancient Poems of the Finnish People anthology).
"It was sung by a person called ‘Tarin akka’ (Tari’s Hag). You can’t find the exact version from there though, because over the years the song has altered in people’s mouths.
The storyline is the same however. It’s a very strange song, because the Creator,God and Mari get mixed up all the time. Oh yes, Mari is Saint Mary. I really like the story: there’s an element of ‘living death’ and this terrible feeling that there’s loads of people following right behind you, watching and commenting on what you are doing. But in the end no one has any idea of Mari’s mission. Also the aspect of a road and going down the road is always fascinating."
