Loituma has made Ieva’s Polka known worldwide.
”Ievan polkka” (Savo Finnish for ”Ieva’s Polka”) is a popular Finnish song with lyrics printed in 1928 and written by Eino Kettunen to a traditional Finnish polka tune. The song is sung in very heavy Eastern Savonian dialects spoken in North Karelia. It takes the point of view of a young man, telling about a woman named Ieva (Eva or Eeva in standard Finnish) who sneaks out to where everyone is dancing to a polka, and dances all night. The song is often confused with being a traditional song, but Eino Kettunen is still under copyright.
Musicians around the world have made cover versions of Ieva’s Polka. Here are a couple of them
