Aura Raulo (vocals, lyrics) & Elsa Sihvola (piano, vocals, compositions)

Kuningatarpäivät on Aura Raulon (sanoitukset, laulu) ja Elsa Sihvolan (sävellykset, soittimet, laulu) bändi, jonka kutsumuksena on elvyttää retorisen musiikin perinne: tehdä lauluja, joilla on sanoma. Nykyaika on kuitenkin postmodernissa kaoottisuudessaan sen verran monimutkainen, että yksinkertaiset keinot eivät enää riitä kuvaamaan sitä, mitä haluamme kertoa. On otettava käyttöön järeämmät keinot ja tavoiteltava oivalluksen kailoja uusin sanoin…

”Tietä käyden tien on vanki. Vapaa on vain umpihanki.” – Aaro Hellaakoski

Kuningatarpäivät (Queen Day) is a delightful duo with potentially confusing messages. Our music is filled with mysteries, drama, pure joy and redemption and our Finnish lyrics will give you something to think about. Our mission is to awake the rhetorical spirit of music and make songs with a meaning and a message. A song needs to have something to tell, and you don’t necessary need to understand Finnish to be shrilled by our stories. The themes of our songs, such as the tragedy of being alive, the mindset of our generation and the sorrow of losing loved ones to Moscow, arise from the passionate conversations over the breakfast table we share.

deep snow will set you free” – Aaro Hellaakoski
