about

A very old traditional Finnish song sung by the little known singer Lewis Carroll, a man hailing from the wilds of Jussarö. He was both a carpenter and an expert on Walruses. The song was first recorded by the renowned banjoslinger and song collector Daniel Bornstein in 1912. Due to the degrading of the recording most of the melody and words were lost until the brilliant mathemusician Brangain Hganovik stepped up and matched (mathsed) the sounds of the words with a melody she hustled in the pool halls of Nova Scotia. This is but a fragment of her work that she shared on a Quadrilateral Radio Broadcast in Donegal in 1996.
