We wanted to introduce some of the inspirational material for "Dark Money"-EP and here finally is the book that was one of the starting points for the whole creation. Reading "Treasure Islands" by Nicholas Shaxson creates a kind of a "blue pill-red pill"-experience as in Matrix the movie. Once one starts to understand how deep the brutally opportunistic and unfair offshore banking system is embedded in contemporary finance, there's no returning back. THIS is the main reason why rich people get richer and poor people get poorer.

The "recommended reading"-list of our latest creation is naturally not the most light but these topics affect each and everyone of us and even if they are discomforting we should still try to understand them best we can. Only that way can we criticize them and hope to see a change somewhere down the road.

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy and we'll be back with more new music sooner than you know!

There are totally ruthless individuals and huge companies taking advantage of desperate conflicts all over the world. Someone has to provide weapons, ammunition, radars etc. if there is to be a war. "The Shadow World" by Andrew Feinstein is a shattering and thorough account of this dark business and its remorseless actors, highly recommendable reading.

So what's left after Dark Money has taken what it wants? Ordinary citizens who have lost something. That is the basic idea: wealthy and powerful people using their wealth and power in the backrooms of politics to get even more wealthy and powerful. With the limited resources of our planet becoming all the time more and more unequally divided, how long is this going to be possible? How many of us are okay with that?

Hello people, we hope everyone is dealing well with the current extraordinary situation and staying safe and healthy. It hasn't felt like the time to promote our Dark Money-release but perhaps music is one of the best ways to get one's mind off of worries so here goes. In this case actually we hope to get our collective minds focused on some really big issues that create massive inequality worldwide. Welcome to Dark Money, a real-world dystopia of hidden powers, corruption and conservatism. Highly recommended reading, the killer book by Jane Meyer that's inspired the whole EP:

Hyvät asiakkaamme,

Suomen hallitus linjasi torstaina kiellon yli 500 osallistujan tapahtumien järjestämisestä toukokuun loppuun asti. G Livelab Helsingin kapasiteetti on alle 300 henkilöä ja klubi noudattaa aiheessa annettuja linjauksia taaten yleisöllemme turvallisen ja miellyttävän keikkakokemuksen. Vallitsevan koronavirusepidemian vuoksi tilojemme puhdistamista ja hygieniaa tehostetaan ennen kaikkia tapahtumia.

Tänään perjantaina 13.3. Dalindèon ennakkoon loppuunmyytyyn levynjulkaisukonserttiin saapuvia pyydetään noudattamaan päivitettyä ohjeistustamme:

· Ethän kättele tai halaa, ja vältäthän lähikontaktia.

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!

Dalindèo: “Soundtrack for the Sound Eye”

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.
