Pyhimys & Saimaa
  • 19.7. klo 17:30 | Main Stage

Saimaa is no stranger to the Pori Jazz festival. The music connoisseurs’ favourite ensemble is known for massive projects where mastermind Matti Mikkola leads the band through projects with veteran vocalists like Pepe Willberg or re-arranges Finnish pop hits and TV themes into trippy prog rock. This year Saimaa joins forces with rapper Pyhimys who recently received a total of six prizes at the Finnish equivalent of the Grammy Awards. The collaboration which first raised a few eyebrows is in fact very natural artistic union, as proven by the album Olisinpa täällä.
