Edea is a Finnish musical group. It is an ensemble of musicians whose music brings to life centuries of European cultural tradition. The Edea's song lyrics are written in an older form of the Finnish language. The mysterious runic symbols inscribed on the bows of Viking boats, door posts, drinking vessels and amulets, as well as the Finnish composer Sibelius are the source of Edea’s haunting, harmonic music and evoke an echo of times past. Edea competed in the Eurovision Song Contest 1998 with their song, Aava.
