ÄIJÄ — A Male Polyphony
Fri 28.9. 9.30pm, Restaurant Kapsäkki
At Juuri Nyt Urban Folk Festival we’ll see a triumphant return of Äijä, a vocal quartet with a repertoire based on polyphonic traditional music from around the world. The four members, Pekko Käppi, Girilal Baars, Taito Hoffrén and Eero Turkka met in 2000 and have since then been performing as Äijä in Finland and Sweden. 2008 they released the album Jet-Black which was very well received in the Finnish press and was nominated for an Etno-Emma.
