Antti Alajääski haastatteli kesäkuun taitteessa Valtteria Maailma Kylässä-festareilla Mieletöntä Valoa-projektin myötä. Erittäin hauska snadi sessio oli! (ääni alkaa toimia kunnolla kohdasta 0:20)

Sorry non-Finnish-speakers, this one's only for those who know :)

A few weeks back we played a showcase-concert at the Jazzahead!-fair in Bremen. Here's a recording of that by the great Arte-channel. It was a very tight 30min set but we enjoyed every minute of it and the very warm crowd made it totally worthwhile. Hope y'all enjoy it too! #dalindeo #slavicsouls #jazzahead #jazzahead2017 #jazzausfinnland

This guy is the drummer! He has an awesome band too, the Jaska Lukkarinen Trio, highly recommended. Have a great weekend everyone!

Our new album entitled “Slavic Souls” will be out in early April! It will be released in Finland by Suomen Musiikki-label and by BBE-records in the rest of the world. Here’s a few thoughts on it from leader and producer Valtteri Laurell Pöyhönen:

“Jazz music in Finland was originally played by musicians who were accompanying popular singers, the schlager stars. The musicians themselves would have preferred to focus on jazz but had to play dance music to make a living. What we are now doing with Dalindèo is playing jazz music heavily influenced by Finnish tango (and other traditional styles) because we appreciate and acknowledge the tradition. Can you mix a soul drumbeat and a tango? Sure you can!”

The official release concert will be at Sellosali, in Espoo (Helsinki), Finland on the 14th of April. You can buy your tickets from Lippu.fi.

Stay tuned for more info, pre-order links and all the good stuff!

Soundtrack for the Sound Eye (2010)

Hot on the heels of their successful 2009 single releases, Dalindèo deliver their eagerly awaited second full-lenght album, “Soundtrack for the Sound Eye”, available on Ricky-Tick Records in January 2010. Moving towards a more cinematic sphere of sound, the Helsinki-based sextet proves that they are ready to match the high expectations brought up by their previous releases.

Dalindèo is a Finnish jazz sextet led by composer-guitarist Valtteri Pöyhönen. An integral part of the Ricky-Tick roster since 2004, the group has released one LP and four singles on the label prior to record number two. A favourite of jazz DJs and aficionados alike, Dalindèo aims at keeping the original spirit of jazz alive with a heavy emphasis on danceable rhythms, characteristic melodies and the craftsmanship of the ensemble’s top-notch musicians.
