Friday 22.11 at 6pm: Recital by the Suvi Oksala Duo

Please to visit us at: / Arkadia International Bookshop and “like” us if indeed you do!
Dear friend of Arkadia,

You are invited to a recital by the Suvi Oksala Duo on Friday 22.11 at 6pm at Arkadia (Nervanderinkatu 11).

Suvi Oskala
, five-string fiddle and voice
Oskari Lehtonen, percussion

The Suvi Oskala Duo consists of two young but experienced folk musicians from Finland. Their music combines free improvisation with new compositions and a knowledge of traditional music.


Warm regards,


Entrance is free but a donation of €3 (or more!) to fund the event is suggested and would be most welcome.


The atmosphere is heightened by the lyrics of Suvi Oskala’s compositions. The lyrics are from poems by a young Finnish poet,
Saija Nojonen, whose work is simultaneously both mundane and absurd. The compositions themselves are influenced by the singer-songwriter
genre as well as the Finnish “ditty” tradition, but approach these influences with a twist.

The duo’s vast knowledge of music and virtuoso use of their instruments, combined with the ambition for developing new sounds on their
instruments, gives their music an extraordinarily wide range of sounds and moods.
