The second album of the 'new' Värttinä, first released in 1992 on Polygram/Spirit, with various re-releases.

This album contains the usual mixture of instrumental (Hoptsoi), vocal/instrumental (Suuret Ja Soriat), and acappella (Sulhassii) music.

Highlights include Matalii Ja Mustii (also known as The Binky Song from Arthur and Friends), which is way too cheerful-sounding to have a title which translates as 'Sad and Mournful'. Another highlight is Kylä Vuotti Uutta Kuuta which is a beautiful song, and, in part, has some uncharacteristically soft voice for Värttinä.
