Recently I've had the amazing honor to work with one of the most incredible musical artists I've ever met, Kirsi Ranto, a singer songwriter from Finland. We've been working on a really inspiring project that we'll be sharing more from over the coming weeks and months.
I'd love to share one of the songs that we filmed and recorded live when I was in Finland this September. While our finished piece will include interviews, narration, music, shots from around her home village of Jalasjärvi, and more; after hearing Kirsi play live, I knew we also had to release some of the songs as music only. There's just something so powerful and moving in seeing Kirsi sitting at her piano playing and singing live. I still get chills every time I watch. This is one of the most gorgeous and inspiring songs I've ever heard. Kirsi's passion is mesmerizing :)
This song is called "Anna mun tulla kotiin" ("Let me come home"). Kirsi wrote this song a few years ago, and it was first released on her album Läikytät Mua (released in 2010). I love that the first song we're releasing is in Finnish, because I feel it will give people who don't understand Finnish the opportunity to really feel her passion and heart without trying to understand the words. I love this song, and hope you enjoy :)
