Biography

Moon Cakes is a band that plays alternative/indie/pop/rock music. Moon Cakes incorporates more diverse and innovative styles in their music, exploring the likes of different genres of music. That´s why Finnish top musicians play in this band.
Moon Cakes on:

Aino Roivainen - vocals and keyboards
Sakari Pesola - guitar
Kirka Sainio - bass
Mika Simo - drums

All started 1983 in a small town in Finland, Kerava. Some brave people formed a music association called Kerava´s Honest Music Association (in Finnish KERMU). Town of Kerava offered KERMU a beautiful old mansion, Lapilan Kartano, to use for band rehearsals.

During the years many bands rehearsed in this mansion… also three young musicians who started the story of Moon Cakes: Aino Roivainen who played synthesizers, Mikko Karmila was an enthusiastic guitar player and Jari Mantila the drummer. This group had no name, but made new songs and recorded them, as Mikko Karmila liked recording and had equipment for that purpose. The idea was to create new kind of music and just to enjoy it.

Spring 1990 Jari Mantila died in fire when the mansion burnt. That´s when Aino and Mikko decided to do everything they can in order to publish songs that they had made together.
