Biography

Myllärit (The Millers) are a dynamic brisk vocal and instrumental folk band from Russian Karelia.

The group came together in 1992, an outgrowth of the pairing of accordionist Zobnev -described as “a world-class accordionist” in Russian Life’s series titled “100 Young Russians to Watch.”- with Alexander Bykadorov, who had traveled Europe together playing Karelian and Russian folk music in the streets.

The unique sound of Myllärit combines traditional music and poetry of Karelia, the White Sea, Olonets and Ladoga regions, and also Russian songs of the Trans-Onega region, with elements of rock, jazz and world music. Thus, fitting them to suit their more modern style. Besides, the group performs songs of the Ingria ( St.-Petersburg region ) in the local Ingric dialect of the Finnish language.

“Karelia represents a rich mixture of so many different cultures,” said Zobnev. “Our rather severe climatic conditions help to hone this musical style. It is the music of the Russian pomors (White Sea coast natives) and Finnish and Karelian songs. It all mixes together and provides food for Myllärit.”

Myllärit achieve their main impact on stage with great talent and humour. They are outstanding live performers.Their discography includes six albums.

    Myllarit played my high school in the US when I was there, I think in 2000. Still one of the best bands I ever saw live, of any genre. They might have just been playing a high school auditorium for like 300 kids but they put it all on the line. Got to talk them for a bit and bought a CD too. Still have it, even. Awesome stuff.
