SOLO MUSIC

Vilma Jää

 
Vilma Jää’s solo music shifts between acoustic and electronic sounds, combining instruments typical of folk music such as kantele, harmonium, hurdy-gurdy and fiddle with synthetic beats as Finno-Ugric tradition flirts with pop aesthetics. Vilma Jää released her debut single Saatanan saalistaja (Fucking Predator) on November 5, 2021. Vilma Jää creates her solo music together with producer-composer Mikko Renfors.
