Hiski Salomaa (Hiskias Möttö, Kangasniemi 17-5-1891 – New York 7-7-1957)

In the first half of the 20th century, there was a lively interaction between American Finns and Finnish musicians and performers of the time. The duo Tatu Pekkarinen and Afu Tanner toured the Americas. In the USA, Columbia and RCA recorded Finnish performers and distributed records to immigrant audiences. One of these was Hiski Salomaa.

The childhood of Hiski Salomaa (original name: Hiskias Möttö) is described by researcher Juha Niemelä. “Anna Leena Möttö gave birth to a son on May 17, 1891, whose father was known to be Ananias Romo, the husband of Anna Leena's sister Amanda. The son was named Hezekiah after the Old Testament king.” At first, Anna Leena settled with her son in a small smokehouse for her sister and Romo, in the Tipsalo... (continua)

Barrikadimarssi

anonimo
[1905-1906?]

The old, beloved Barricades form now the object of a new song itinerary starting, rather obviously, with one of the most celebrated (and complicated) pages of our database website. Songs about barricades are not, and cannot be, “antiwar” songs: when people were called to the barricades, they were called to fight and resist against -usually well armed- enemies carrying guns and cannons into the core of the cities. The history of barricades is long, both in terms of real, historical events and as a firmly established symbol of people's resistance against oppression. This is why there are so many songs calling to real, physical barricades made of everything thrown down into the streets to form an obstacle, and to ideal barricades made of ideas and ideals, thrown down into people's heads to form an obstacle to any kind of oppression, repression, political and social normalization.

MUSTAT KAARTIT, MAHNOLAISET JA VAPAA TERRITORIO

Mahnolaiset (tunnetaan myös nimillä Musta armeija ja Ukrainan vallankumouksellinen kapinallisarmeija) oli Ukrainassa 1918 - 1920 toiminut anarkistinen armeija, joka piti hallussaan niin kutsuttua Vapaata territoriota eli Anarkistista Ukrainaa.

Ensimmäisen Mustan kaartin perusti Maria Marusya Nikiforova Alexandrovskissa Ukrainassa. Myöhemmin Nestor Mahno perusti saman mallin mukaisia joukkoja ympäri Ukrainaa.

Vuonna 1918 Mustien kaartien pohjalta perustettiin Ukrainan vallankumouksellinen kapinallisarmeija eli Mahnolaiset. Kapinallisarmeijan tunnuslauseita olivat “Vapaus tai kuolema” ja “Maa talonpojille, tehtaat työläisille!” Kapinallisarmeijan ja Vapaan territorion... (continua)

Lakkolaulu Pajalasta

anonimo
In their 1978 book Edestä aattehen - suomalaisia työväenlauluja 1890 - 1938 (For the Cause - Finnish Working Class Songs 1890 - 1938), Ilpo Saunio and Timo Tuovinen write: »Lakkolaulu Pajalasta (Strike Song from Pajala) is a rare sample of the working class song tradition of Finnish-speaking people living in northern Sweden. It was written in Pajala during the 1930 - 1931 roadworkers' strike. The first labor union of Pajala was established in 1931. In the autumn of 1931, after the National Road Administration had refused to negotiate on wages, the workers called for a strike that continued until spring 1932. The name Anttila in the 4th stanza refers to a person who was recruiting scabs during the strike.«

The Torne is a river in northern Finland and Sweden and, since the annexation of Finland to the Russian Empire in 1809, the official border between the two countries. Throughout history,... (continua)

Stung Right

These lyrics have been written by an unknown Finnish-American author, propably a Wobbly, i.e. a member of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), or »tuplajuulainen« (a double-u'er) as the Finnish Wobblies used to call themselves. This is clearly shown by the word »skääppi«, a Finglish equivalent of the English word scab. And scabs are what this version of the song is all about.

Workers of the World, Awaken

This Finnish-American Wobbly version of the song by an unknown author was first published in 1918 in Proletaari Lauluja (Proletarian Songs, Workers Socialist Publishing Company, Duluth, Minnesota). According to Ilpo Saunio & Timo Tuovinen’s book Edestä aattehen - suomalaisia työväenlauluja 1890 - 1938 (For the Cause - Finnish Working Class Songs 1890 - 1938, Tammi Publishing Company, Helsinki 1978), its lyricist is unknown suggesting that the Finnish music archive records crediting the almost identical lyrics of the above version (Proletaarit nouskaa) from 1928 to Hannes Saari may not be correct.

Itkuvirsi sodissa kaatuneille

anonimo
[ab. 1914?]
Recorded by Kimmo Pohjonen and Heikki Laitinen
Album / Albumi: Murhaballadeja [2012]


"Itkuvirsi sodissa kaatuneille is a fine tale of the pioneer of Finnish folk music research, Armas Otto Väisänen. The vocal samples used so well in the performance are from Väisänen’s lament recordings made in Mordova, Russia in 1914. Pohjonen plays the accordion impressively throughout."

Finnish Music Quarterly



This song is called “Lament for Those Fallen in Wars”; it has been recorded by Kimmo Pohjonen and Heikki Laitinen in their (wonderful) 2012 album Murhaballadeja (“Murder Ballads”). I have tried to translate the lyrics, but this task has proved far beyond my current possibilities. I can only grasp the general meaning of the song lyrics, but no full translation is possible to me. I kindly ask Juha Rämö to translate it in no hurry, and thank him in advance. [RV]

Drones

Here's another song about killer drones with a lot of background information. It's one of the five finalists of the 2018 German Peace Song Contest. I have posted all of them (Frieden für die Kinder dieser Welt, Zwei Wölfe, Circulus terroris, Back in the Days and All in All), but so far, none of them has been translated into Italian, which I wonder. So how about it, guys? After all, it's the only peace song contest arranged on a regular basis I know of and, therefore, an important source of brand new content for this page.
