Name

This section does not cite any sources. (April 2021)

The name of the band is derived from the Finnish national epic. The group chose this name because of lead vocalist Xenia Markevich's Finnish parents. Moreover, the band is inspired by ancient Finnish and Sami music, Finno-Ugric legends, and contemporary Finnish bands like Finntroll, Korpiklaani, etc.







History

After a concert in Penza on 15 April 2007 with Nevid, singer Xenia and guitarist Nikita Andrianov decided to leave the band and start a new one. Together with keyboardist and accordion player Alexandr Oleinikov, bassist Alexandr Schmel, and drummer Mark Vasili, they started Kalevala.

After releasing their first demo in 2007, they began playing shows around various Russian cities, including Moscow and Saint Petersburg.

In April 2008, the band released their debut album, Kudel Belosnezhnogo L'na. One year later, they came out with their second record, Kukushkiny Djeti, followed by Vjed'ma a year after.

In a 2011 interview, Andrianov discussed the band's intention to release an acoustic album under the name Sami Sun.

In 2016, Kalevala held their first concert tour outside of the former Soviet Union, named Hail the Spring!, visiting Eastern Europe, France, and Berlin, Germany.

Нагрянули

Kalevala (Russia) lyrics

Не было собак — да вдруг залаяли.

Поздно ночью — что за чудеса!

Кто-то едет? слышишь, в поле за сараями

Раздаются чьи-то голоса...

Ты прости нас, полюшко усталое,

Ты прости, как братьев и сестер:

Может, мы за все свое бывалое

Разожгли последний наш костер.

Не было гостей — и вот нагрянули.

Не было вестей — так на! Получай!

Как под ивами багряными

Расходился праздник наш невзначай.

Ты прости нас, полюшко усталое,

Ты прости, как братьев и сестер:

Может, мы за все свое бывалое

Разожгли последний наш костер.

Под луной, под гаснущими ивами

Посмотрели гости мой любимый край

И опять умчались, ой да торопливые,

И пропал вдали собачий лай...

Может быть они, последний раз нагрянули,

А может быть, скоро нас навестят...

Как по саду, садику багряному

Грустно-грустно листья шелестят.

Ты прости нас, полюшко усталое,

Ты прости, как братьев и сестер:

Может, мы за все свое бывалое

Разожгли последний наш костер.

English Translation

Unexpectedly dropped in

There were no dogs- but suddenly they start barking mad,

Late at night- a miracle, or what!

Who is coming? do you hear, in the field behind the shed

Someone's voices heard...

 

You,tired field, do forgive us,

As brothers and sisters we your forgiveness require:

Maybe, we are, for all our past

Lit our last campfire

 

There were no guests- and behold, here they go.

There were no news- so, here they are! Receive!

Like under scarlet willow

Quite unexpectedly gone wild our feast.

 

You,tired field, do forgive us,

As brothers and sisters we your forgiveness require:

Maybe, we are, for all our past

Lit our last campfire.

 

Under the moon, under the fading willows

The guests saw my beloved land

And again took off, oh so hurriedly they go,

And barking of the dogs in the distance ends...

 

Maybe, for the last time they've dropped on us, so sadden,

And maybe, soon, they will visit us...

Like along the garden, scarlet garden

Sadly-sadly the leaves are rustle

 

You,tired field, do forgive us,

As brothers and sisters we your forgiveness require:

Maybe, we are, for all our past

Lit our last campfire.

Kalevala

The Kalevala (Finnish: Kalevala, IPA: [ˈkɑleʋɑlɑ]) is a 19th-century work of epic poetry compiled by Elias Lönnrot from Karelian and Finnish oral folklore and mythology, telling an epic story about the Creation of the Earth, describing the controversies and retaliatory voyages between the peoples of the land of Kalevala called Väinölä and the land of Pohjola and their various protagonists and antagonists, as well as the construction and robbery of the mythical wealth-making machine Sampo.

The Kalevala is regarded as the national epic of Karelia and Finland and is one of the most significant works of Finnish literature with J. L. Runeberg's The Tales of Ensign Stål and Aleksis Kivi's The Seven Brothers. The Kalevala was instrumental in the development of the Finnish national identity and the intensification of Finland's language strife that ultimately led to Finland's independence from Russia in 1917. The work is also well known internationally and has partly influenced, for example, J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium (i.e. Middle-earth mythology).

The first version of the Kalevala, called the Old Kalevala, was published in 1835, consisting of 12,078 verses. The version most commonly known today was first published in 1849 and consists of 22,795 verses, divided into fifty folk stories (Finnish: runot). An abridged version, containing all fifty poems but just 9732 verses, was published in 1862.
