Rajaton

International Spotlight

Take three women, three men, and there you have Finland’s highest profile a cappella group—Rajaton. Since the group originally formed in 1997 their accomplishments have been many and quite varied—going platinum for their cover album Rajaton Sings ABBA and winning a Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award for Best Folk Song for “Nouse Lauluni,” earlier this year releasing a children’s album, and, perhaps most impressively of all, going a long toward mainstream success by successfully spanning classical and contemporary musical tastes within their Finnish audience and abroad.
