We're extremely happy to take part in the 2018 edition of the We Jazz-festival in Helsinki with a special project featuring the music of Polish jazz visionary Krzysztof Komeda! This concert will feature visuals by a Polish crew and the venue itself is one of the coolest in town, Kattilahalli at Suvilahti. December can't come too soon!

While we're still on a break for a moment with Dalindèo, you have a chance to hear music composed by Valtteri for an exclusive 9-piece ensemble featuring the clarinetist extraordinaire Antti Sarpila as well as Dalindèo drummer Jaska and saxophonist Pope. This gig will be at the Savoy Theatre in Helsinki on the 15th of September and it's a double-bill with German trumpet star Till Brönner.

Tonight we're taking a small break from our hiatus and playing at the castle in Bad Muskau for the Görlitzer Jazztage. One of the more picturesque stages of late!

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!

“Slavic Souls”-videos and remix out!

Here are 2 videos of the title track to our “Slavic Souls”-album. The second one is a remix by producer Mr. Bird, who also did the great remix of “Rhythm of Kallio”. Both videos were made by Finnish cinematographer Joona Pettersson. Hope you enjoy!



“Slavic Souls” album out in April!

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.
