Calle Nightclub 23.00
“We come from Salla, Inare and Rovaniemi in Lapland. Our music is marinated in many special sauces.”
Expect a furious tempo, steamy feelings and delightful visions when beautiful Balkan and romantic Russian rhythms collide with old Finnish schlager music. The international “ethnoband” from Lapland, Jaakko Laitinen & Väärä Raha are coming to Kokkola. The band is known for their live performances from Ruissalo to Suomussalmi as well as from Eira to Inare.
Outside Finland, the band has performed in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Hungary, Kazakstan, Makedonien, Turkey, Ukraine, Russia and in the Scandinavian and Baltic countries. The performance promises to include favorites such as “Hän ei lemmi mua” och “Yö Rovaniemella,” but also fresh bites from the band’s fourth album, which is due out in winter 2017.
