Ja Ja Ja – Berlin 2017 April
12.04.2017 – 12.04.2017
Ja Ja Ja – A Nordic Music Affair returns to Berlin. Ja Ja Ja is a club night celebrating the very best new music emerging from Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Denmark.
The Nordic music night takes place at FluxBau, Berlin, on the 6th of April. The Finnish act performing at Ja Ja Ja Berlin in April will be Mikko Joensuu.
Mikko Joensuu is a singer-songwriter who stands out from the crowd. His first solo album Amen 1 (released in May 2016) taps into the American folk music tradition and classic songwriters like Townes Van Zandt, Lee Hazlewood and Leonard Cohen. The album is all about deep, healing songs that can give the impression of spending time in quiet, intimate surroundings. The arrangements are raw but beautiful, mostly just piano and guitar accompany the Finnish musician's voice, with occasional pedal steel guitars and soothing string sections. Joensuu's follow-up album Amen 2, released six months after the debut, finds inspiration in the big indie rock sounds of Spiritualized and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Part 3 of the trilogy comes out in spring 2017.
Europe's leading startup event Slush returns to Helsinki.
