Dear friend of Arkadia,

Arkadia will be filled with the sound of suomiklezmer (”Finnish Klezmer”), when the Sampo Lassila Narinkka trio perform! The colours of klezmer, rhythms of the Balkan and the Finnish rugged groove will be the ingredients of the musical soup the trio will offer.

Suomiklezmer –trio Sampo Lassila Narinkka soittaa konsertin Arkadiassa – luvassa on ilta musiikkia, jossa juutalaisen perinneklezmerin sävyt, balkan -musiikin rikas rytmiikka ja suomalaiskansallinen jäyhä svengi luovat illan tunnelman.

Sampo Lassila NARINKKA is a dynamic and virtuosic trio, which music can be called: ”suomiklezmer”. (Suomi being the Finnish word for Finland). Their music is new, Finnish and European worldmusic, acoustic worldjazz, that mixes a wide range of influences from traditional Jewish and Balkan folk music even to contemporary chamber music and jazz – with distinctive Finnish-sounding melodies and soundworlds, Finnish mentality, humour and musical stories.

Narinkka was founded by Sampo Lassila in 2010. The debut-album raised straight up to 4th place in the World Music Charts Europe in February 2013 and stayed for three months in the Top20. This album also scored 16 in the World Music Charts Europe for the whole year 2013, being the most successful Nordic album in the year 2013. Narinkka has performed pretty widely in Finland, in 2015 the trio will tour Germany and Iceland.
