Saturday at Lokki Stage will be kickstarted by an ensemble of first-class Finnish musicians, who will be playing brand new songs. Singer Emma Salokoski and Ilmiliekki quartet released the celebrated album "Vi sålde våra hemman" almost a decade ago. It featured poems composed by Edith Södergran and Elmer Diktonius. They will be launching a new album later this year which will include even more gems of Fenno-Swedish poetry as well as texts from living poets. The album, which will be released in October, will certainly be one not to be missed, therefore this concert should definitely be included in your schedule on Saturday. Emma Salokoski will be accompanied by Verneri Pohjola (trumpet), Tuomo Prättälä (piano), Antti Lötjönen (Bass) and Olavi Louhivuori (drums).
Lineup: Emma Salokoski (voc); Veneri Pohjola (tpt); Tuomo Prättälä (p); Antti Lötjönen (b); Olavi Louhivuori (d)
