One night, one composer, two ensembles.
Accordionist Johanna Juhola and Female Choir KYN are both known as expressive renewers of their respective instruments and as creators of novel styles of fusion music who sail smoothly across different genres. In this concert they combine forces in a new way: Juhola débuts as a choral composer when KYN premiers her five movement suite for female choir and accordion, Keinuva tyttö (Swinging Girl).
In the second set, Johanna Juhola Reaktori offers an eclectic mix of tango, electronic music, Scandinavian roots and eccentric pop. The night culminates in KYN and Reaktori blending in as one band. With these two venturesome and artful ensembles you are in for at least a double experience!
