THU 15.8. 17:00 Night of the Arts: Janne Masalin

Kuva: Miikka Pirinen

The former soloist of Tundramatiks, a band which cooked together Slavic punk, jazz and garage rock influences, and the 13-piece marching band Bad Ass Brass Band, Janne Masalin is an urban pelimanni and hipster nomad. The pieces of his 2023 solo album Kuoseja are built on elastic beats, rocking live playing and ad-libs. His solo gig, presented at the Etno-Espa and Savoy Theatre Night of the Arts, features Masalin as a modern one-man band, commanding the stage with roaring machine sounds, techno beats and synthesisers, a Telecaster and an accordion hanging around his neck, and belting out songs!
