Niillas’ yoik tradition and singer-songwriter style shaking hands with three superior multi-instrumentalists with different musical backgrounds. The result is a tapestry of stranded atmosphere and dynamics. Niillas’ songs are touched by vividness as Linda Fredriksson and Teho Majamäki represent the finest quality Finland has offer in their fields. 

 

  • Niillas Holmberg (vocals)

  • Roope Mäenpää (cello, piano)

  • Linda Fredriksson (saxophone, bass)

  • Teho Majamäki (drums, percussions, vibraphone etc)
