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 and fiddle with synthetic beats as Finno-Ugric tradition flirts with pop aesthetics. Vilma Jää has released two singles: Saatanan saalistaja (2021) and Syntymistään sureva (2022). Vilma Jää creates her solo music together with producer-composer Mikko Renfors.
