Noidannuoli can be translated as painstruck although it literally means an arrow of the witch. The song follows a setting to cure and beat an ailment by first describing its' origin and the symptoms and then to drive it away by chanting and verbal outburst. In this case the evil to be exorcised is Noidannuoli - pain in one's lower back. Recorded in 2010. Instruments: shaman drum, hand drum, julmu (the bird whistle), pärrä (the whirling wood), sheep vertebrae, elk jawbone.
