In 2010, Finland sent two members of the folk band Värttinä to Oslo. Susan Aho and Johanna Virtanen called themselves Kuunkuiskaajat (‘Moonwhisperers’). They performed their driving flok song “Työlki ellää” (“One can work for a living, too”) in a Karelian dialect of Finnish. They sing that “One lives by working too, but gets rich by trading” and sing to the sun: “shine, sun, walk your route, dear moon”. They performed in all white dresses, one accompanying the singing with a white accordion.
