Waltari consider Europe as their homeland and continuously actively tour, yet also reach beyond. Waltari albums have been released worldwide. The band had charted in Finnish top 10 multiple times and played in some of the largest (rock + metal) festivals of Europe, like Roskilde or at Wacken Open Air. Waltari have accomplished many crossover experiments with different performance arts, for example “Evankeliumi” – composed for a dance choreography by famous dancer Jorma Uotinen, and performed in the Finnish National Opera. Or “Yeah! Yeah! Die! Die!” – a (death) metal and classical music fusion, performed with legendary Avanti! Orchestra in Helsinki… Also, “Symposion” in 2015 was based on the art of famous Finnish artist Gallen-Kallela.There’s always plenty to talk about Waltari – but for now: Let the music do the talking. What’s most important: The crazy Finns are here for everyone’s joy.
