Mikko Innanen sparked and interest for province songs whilst working in the residency of the artistic city of Paris. “After returning to Finland I found Jenny Elfvingi’s and Ilmari Hannikainen’s 1927 delivered music notebook called “Suomen maakuntalaulut”. The book includes around 30 province songs, many of the provinces had multiple competing pieces. Jazz characteristically is international – could I as jazz musician play province songs in my own way and with whom.
At the Polar Night Jazz, we are about to hear unique concert when a true northern dimension is brought to Innanen’s and Kujala’s province songs. Ulla Pirttijärvi adds Sami land and its cultural heritage to Finland’s province songs.
Tickets 15 €.
