You misspelled Ievvan.

Is it really a folk song tho? I thought it had an author or I mistaken something?

It is really a folk song. It was popularized by some performers.

Just double checked. The melody is indeed a folk one, it's the lyrics that were written in the 1920s.

"Laula" is one of the few Finnish words I knew before this course. Sounds sooo pleasant! An in general, Finnish is one of the most melodic languages to sing in!

1000% agree! I became dreaming to learn Suomen kieli after listening songs in Finnish. I just felt in love in this culture and language :)
