Hello everyone! This year we’ll be taking it very easy in regards to playing live shows. It’s time once again to take Dalindèo’s music to new spheres and this will take lots of time and focus. We feel that there are new musical paths to explore after the organic succession of ”Kallio” and ”Slavic Souls”-albums respectively. As of late, many electronic effects and sounds have been added to our live sets so it seems our future sound will get more psychedelic and contemporary. But stay tuned, we’ll start to post some snippets when the experimentation gets going!

This info also to let you know that if you have a chance to see us in 2018, you should take it 🙂 The next chance will be at the small stage of the great Tampere-talo, an awesome concert hall with killer acoustics that always inspire for experimentation. So Tampere-peeps, hope see you there!

Having trouble starting your week? Maybe some balkan-humppa-psychedelics could help. Here's a little clip from our concert in Salé, near Rabat. This one features the latest addition to our musical arsenal, percussion player Rasmus's incredible and unpredictable Synare electronic sound machine. Watch out for it!

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. 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.
