Raw and haunting, it's polar night in Finland. Welcome to the dark side of the Saana Fjeld in Lapland.
Heikki Hallanoro is probably the only man in the world who has written a novel and made a song for every chapter of the book. Albums 'Säveltar' and 'Huurrehelmet' are from his novel Viivalla ('On the line', Nispero 2012), an intimate story of love and death which takes you inside a young man's head.
Huurrehelmet is Heikki Hallanoro's praised second studioalbum.
This extended version includes also a 30-minute solo gig by Heikki Hallanoro. It's recorded in Finland, in the city of Oulu and it's main library on 17th of April 2018.
