Vapaa are a group that I've never heard of. I opened the case to their self titled CD and was astonished at the 15 member line up. What's on offer here is a colossal 50 minute live recording of improvised freak out that fuses cosmic free jazz with bizarre forest folk. There's a whole load of interesting and weird and wonderful instruments called into action on this psychedelic journey. It's like a big audio mushroom trip with people going bonkers on clarinets, melodica and all sorts... The press release mentions elves and goblins which amused me immensely. Anyone remember the Ghosts and Goblins video game? That kicked 8-bit ass that did.
