Akkajee is a band of two akkas* creating string noise on the rotten roots of Finnish folk tradition. Their layered aesthetics will invite you to the world of frozen lakes, haunting nightmares and the ancient mystery of giving birth. The vocal and instrumental storytelling varies from intimate to fierce seasoned with pulsating beats and floating soundscapes.
Iida Savolainen: viola, vocals & stomp box
Meriheini Luoto: nyckelharpa & vocals
*Akka, n(f), Finnish. A head strong woman with a decisive attitude and a sharp tongue.
