This special gig in Helsinki’s Kiasma-teatteri on the Eve of Easter Holidays (March 28th) features the band playing a lot of music, old and new – and in two acts. Sometimes creepy silent, sometimes deadly loud! There will be video projections and even some surprise guests.
You don’t want to miss this one! Be sure to reserve your tickets early, because Kiasma-teatteri is not that big and fills up quickly. If you can’t visit Kiasma, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the ticket office +358917336501.
To our Finnish fans: If you happen to be at Senaatintori on New Year’s Eve today, there’s a huge fireworks and pyrotechnics show, together with lots of other acts and music. Part of the act contains a newly recorded and angry version of our song Mielisaurus, originally from the album Huuro Kolkko. You can watch the show on channel TV1 starting on 23:05 all the way past midnight. Or check it out later next year from YLE AREENA (only for Finnish viewers). Enjoy and have a great New Year!
Our latest release VALTA is one of the four EMMA award nominees for the best World music album of the year 2012 (in Finnish – Etnoalbumi 2012). This big Nordic happening is in March 2013 and then we will know the lucky winner! Wish us luck!
Our latest release VALTA is getting its first reviews in Finland. Here are some quotes:
“Rakastettavan täysipainoista voimallisuutta.”
- Rumba 05/12 – 4.5/5
“VALTA on ihan todellista fuusiomusiikkia.”
- Soundi, 05/12 – 4/5
“…raskaasti ja rikkaasti luikerteleva musisointi hakee vertaistaan globaalilla tasolla.”
- Meteli.net #68 – 4/5
“Luritukset luistavat ja tömistykset tyrmäävät juuri niin kuin villiä teini-ikää elävälle ja balettia harrastavalle sirkusnorsulle sopii.”
- VALTA release concert review, Helsingin Sanomat 7.5.12
