Sara is a Finnish alternative rock / metal band from Kaskinen established in the mid-1990s by Jorma Korhonen, Antti Tuomivirta, Tommi Koivikko and Kristian Udd. Drummer Eetu Uusitalo was added in 1997. The vocalist Joa Korhonen joined in after winning a talent contest and soon the band was signed to Kråklund Records. In 2005, and after Andreas Backlund joined the band in 2005, they were signed to Universal Records Finland[1]

Career[edit]

Their debut album Narupatsaat was released in 2000. Soon Eetu Uusitalo resigned and was replaced by Niko Leminen. The follow-up album Kromi was successfully reaching No. 9 on the Finnish Album Charts, followed by Saattue in 2003 after which the band went into a hiatus. After signing with Universal Finland in 2005, they released their album He kutsuivat luokseen 2006[2] and Veden äärelle in 2008.[3][4] Their latest album Se keinuttaa meitä ajassa has proved their most successful making it to No. 4.
