Finnish folk/world music band JONNE have launched a new single “En olé” from their upcoming album “Kallohonka”. Listen single on music services: http://lnk.to/Enol
Jonne Järvelä, the driving force of the internationally successful folk metal band KORPIKLAANI, released his debut solo album Jonne on 2014. The stripped and rawer interpretation of shamanistic folk music attracted great attention and gained a lot of supporters all around the world. Although it started out as a solo project, Jonne has now become a fully active live band with 10 musicians from the Finnish metal and folk scene.The band consists of Jonne Järvelä, Santeri Kallio (Amorphis), Jan Rechberger (Amorphis), Natalie Koskinen (Shape Of Despair), Eero Haula (Oceanwake), Jussi Rautio (Battlelore and Lovijatar), Yovan Nagwetch (Wabanag), Pinja Lintonen, Matti Karjalainen and Toni Perttula.
The new album Kallohonka will be filled with spiritually dazzling music, it’s based on eternal tunes and stories about the returning to foregone-roots. To set the right feel, musicians used a variety of folk music instruments, such as mandolin, kantele, fiddle, accordion and flute, yet they didn’t forget about some classic live-band instruments – both acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards and percussion.
The first single “Vieras” was released a month ago, and it was the first song in which Jonne Järvelä has used a musical instrument from the Baltic psaltery family – previously mentioned Finnish kantele. The sound of this instrument kinda sets the tone – it’s one of the main instruments of the whole album.
The second single “En olé” is a little bit different though, you can strongly feel latino vibes. There’s a variety of musical instruments as it’s supposed to be in folk music, but that Spanish-spirit sure is breaking out. And it’s great, this shows us that Northern people are not just cold and depressed as it might seem to others, they have a serious, passionate, hot-blooded soul inside of them too, they just don’t show that that often…
So turn the volume up and take a listen to this Finnish folk – latino style!
