“Värttinä (Finnish for spindle) is a Finnish folk music band from the village of Rääkkylä, in Karelia, the southeastern region of Finland. As of 2009, the band consists of three lead female vocalists supported by three acoustic musicians. The vocalists sing in the Karelian language of Finnish Karelia.”
The song is about a wife whose husband is sleeping with all the girls in town. She decides it’s got to stop, and so kicks him out. She sends him on his way with a leather whip (nahkaruoska), and hits him with a cane (vivi = whack).
