Paavoharju was a Finnish musical collective of ascetic Christians formed around two brothers, Lauri and Olli Ainala. They came to attention in 2005 when their debut album was highlighted as "Album of the Week" by popular publication Stylus Magazine.
2008's Laulu Laakson Kukista, their second album, (translates to A Song about Flowers of the Valley) was selected by noted music website Pitchfork Media as a recommendation, and ranked 18th on Metacritic's list of the 30 best-reviewed albums of the year.
The band toured the United Kingdom in mid-2007, playing shows in London and Bristol.
