MYSTISEN NAARAAN PORTTI is an artist and a musical collaboration. It is focused around the songs of Teemu Suuntamaa. The album Mystisen naaraan portti was released in March 2018. Mystisen naaraan portti’s shady and warm acoustics are driven by the picked classical guitar of Suuntamaa with his gentle and strong vocal performance. The instrumentation on the record ranges from synthesizers to bandoneon, folk instruments like Mongolian morin huur to double bass, and female vocalists. The music can be broadly located within the singer-songwriter and contemporary folk frameworks with a leaning toward electronic, ambient and experimental. Or one could more bluntly name it freak folk. At the center of expression remain Suuntamaa’s lyrics, in Finnish, rich with images, dealing poetically with subjects like meaning, love, stillness and family, but also more hard-to-grasp emotional layers and moods located more to the night side of the mind.
