Heavy metal paves path for Finnish studies
A soft, gentle language, the language of Father Christmas. This is how Italian Virginia Cerchi, 25, describes Finnish, which caught her attention when she heard it on a Nightwish record. "One of the Nightwish records had a song in Finnish. I started to wonder what that nice language was." Cerchi searched YouTube for other music in Finnish and came across the Ella and Aleksi children's songs.
