Biography

Emma Salokoski was born in Helsinki 10.28.76. She started playing violin when she was 11 years old. After Sibelius-upper secondary school (musical school in Finland) she moved to Stockholm to study musictheater in Kulturama. She graduated in 98.

Her newest Album ‘Veden Alla’ (Under the Water) is mostly based on the material made by the band itself thus few other composers have also been involved.
