The human race spent almost 2 trillion on weapons in 2018. What else could we achieve with that amount of money?

Hello peoples! Tomorrow you can hear the first sounds from the upcoming Dark Money EP. The single Merchants of Misery features one of our favourite artists of all time, the unique Mr. Jimi Tenor on tenor sax!

The track is dedicated to some of the most evil people on the planet: arms manufacturers and weapon dealers. How is it possible that this huge business (an estimated $1756 billion in 2012 - https://www.sipri.org/yearbook/2013/03) is even allowed to exist? How many of us think that this planet needs any more weapons of any kind?

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!
