The Finnish-Norwegian Cultural Institute is happy to support a new concert series Ääni sauna, produced by Blank Blank and Oslo Badstuforening. The series explore alternative, marginal and not-so-marginal sounds from Finland, creating a variety of music and art to go along with the heat and culture of the sauna.
First up in the series is Jaakko Eino Kalevi, a Finnish multi-instrumentalist known for his analogue and electronic sounds. Combining folk, funk, and psych-rock into trippy experimental pop, Jaakko has woven his own style through a unique blend of the textural universe of analogue synths and experimental music.
Jaakko has over the years produced and released a number of EPs, albums and remixes on British Domino records as well on other labels like Beats in Space, Helmi (Finland) and his own label JEKS Viihde. For the first edition of Ääni Sauna, Jaakko will perform an outdoors live set specially created for Oslo Badstuforening, featuring Kari Kamrud (Farao, Ultraflex).
If the weather is good the performance will take place on the roof of the ‘Anda’ sauna, visible for spectators from land as well, in case of rain there will be very limited capacity in a tent on the dock. Hot saunas and good mood is guaranteed despite the weather.
When: Friday 27 August at 17:00. Free entrance and free sauna drop-in between 16-19.
Where: Oslo Badstuforening, Sukkerbiten. Please note that there is a limited capacity in the saunas and on the dock. Reservations not accepted.
