Join us for the Nordic Bridges reception to close off the year in celebration of Nordic cultures. There will be speeches, an exceptional performance by the Finnish beatbox group Tuuletar and an Icelandic DJ to end our fun evening.
With fierce energy, beatbox rhythms and other-worldly harmonies, Tuuletar take Finnish music abroad with a novel approach. The band’s virtuoso singers create a sonic landscape where beatbox rhythms and Finnish poetry tradition meet global influences. With freshly invigorating original music, Tuuletar enchants audiences globally with its heartfelt, tribal and captivating spirit.
The band’s debut album Tules Maas Vedes Taivaal, in 2016, was a huge international success and won the prestigious EMMA award (the Finnish equivalent to the Grammy Award) for the best ethno album of the year. The following year, their song Alku sold to HBO for an episodic spot on Game of Thrones.
Their second album Rajatila / Borderline gained rave reviews and has been playlisted on radio shows worldwide. Their second album’s raw and fragile sound draws inspiration from trip-hop, art pop, ancient spells and folktales.
Tuuletar has toured worldwide, with major tours across Asia and performing at festivals in New Zealand, India and Budapest. In 2022, Tuuletar celebrates its 10th anniversary with a unique, retrospective live show filled with warm friendships and memories from tours worldwide.
