About Ameriikan Poijat
Loosely translated, Ameriikan Poijat means Boys of America. A wind septet of third-generation American Finns, the members are all drawn from Minnesota and Michigan, a region where many Nordic settlers arrived. During the 1980s, Paul Niemisto, the group's founder, made contact with many Finnish brass players and discovered this relatively unknown musical tradition. In 1990, the group was formed. It has evolved around the beautiful charm of the old music and dance arrangements, and has enjoyed popularity among Finnish-American festival-goers
