Yes, I do. They are very much based on the eastern tradition (Karelia) ,
though they have modernised the settings of some songs. Still, most are
based on authentic old songs.

Another Finnish folk group that I really like is Angelin tytöt (Girls from
Angeli, lately renamed to Angelit) who are Saami and have made traditional
albums, but the girls have also collaborated with a heavy metal band Waltari
to create some quite "interesting" songs. Fun, if you like both folk music
and heavy metal =).
