Biography

Emma Salokoski Ensemble started as a trio in 2001, concentrating mainly on standards and brazilian music. Mikko Kosonen (guitar) and Lauri Porra (bass) were in from the start, with Tuomo Prättälä (keyboards) hopping in from time to time on a gig or two. At that time the band was mainly a therapeutic hobby for the musicians, who were all very busy touring and recording with other projects. In 2003 the trio released an EP “Puutarhassa” in all stillness, and it was a surprise when it suddenly jumped up on the singles top 20 list.

The demand for more music made the group think more seriously about the project, and in 2005 it finally released a full-length album, “Kaksi mannerta” (Two Continents). Most of the songs were sung in Finnish, and the band had increased to a quintet, adding the percusssionist Marko Timonen and making Prättälä a full-time member. The album rocketed up to #4 on the charts and sold so much that the records went out of print. The music of “Kaksi mannerta” is a mixture of mellow Finnish moods and the “joie-de-vivre” of brazilian rhythms. The combination may sound odd, but is in fact a fascinating mix where two continents, the arctic and the tropical, meet.

    Jäi häiritsemään "Veden Alla" biisin laulumelodia on muuten suoraan kuin jostain toisesta biisistä, mutta en millän muista/löydä että mistä. Hieno biisi kuitenkin.

    Hi Emma, I have been trying to find a 'home' for my 1960's protest song 'Poor Max!' which you can listen to at 'coolwindchris' here at last.fm. The track was made with Finale so the voice part is wordless, unfortunately. I can send you a .pdf of the music if you are interested - which I hope you will be! Best wishes, Chris Gordon (Coolwindchris)

    Hyvältähän se Emman laulu ja bändin soitto vaan kuulostaa, ei siitä pääse yli eikä ympäri :)

    Eiköhän se ilmaannu jossain vaiheessa, usein tulevat melkoisella viiveellä, jos ollenkaan.
