Eläkeläiset – “Humppa Aktivität“

ELÄKELÄISET play Humppa, a kind of Finnish polka, sometimes faster, sometimes slower, always initiated by a tight, hard-hitting percussion intro. Music, which is very well suited to polonaises or to slide dancing. ELÄKELÄISET claim that all rock, pop or other classics can be played as Humppa versions and then really sound really good.

As already mentioned, this view does not share all record companies, publishers and authors. There was therefore already a lot of disagreement, which proves that there are also people in the music industry who have no sense of humor. These cover versions are, of course, presented in Finnish. This has the advantage that the popular game at the live shows "What's the name of this fucking song in the original?" Is even more complicated. Each Humppa cover version gets a Finnish title in which the word Humppa appears. Also in the text lines it is only so of Humppas.
