Johanna Telander: "Väinämöinen Creates is a song about a person stepping foot into the world for the very first time, wanting to paint his presence on the empty canvas around him so he could find his sense of self, and define his purpose. Väinämöinen discovers his voice has magic and that, through song, he can harness the power to shape nature."

Kalevala The Musical is an epic fantasy set to a lush score of pop, jazz, and a flair of Finnish folk music. Inspired by the national poem of Finland, the story follows two children who find an ancient artifact in the woods, thereby unleashing a magic portal into the forgotten world of Kalevala. Four Nature Spirits guide the children on an adventure through a set of runes to help return the lost Spirit of Man, Väinämöinen, back to his roots, so they could save the world from imminent darkness. Ultimately, the kids become entangled in the story, learning how their creativity can hold power to change the world.
