KAMA Kollektiv (NL)

KAMA Kollektiv is an Amsterdam-based group around Finnish vocalist/trumpeter Kirsi-Marja “Kiki” Harju, plus band members from Israel, Germany and South-Korea. Kiki tells stories – some in Finnish, some in English – about love, transformation, small everyday pleasures and a mystical view of nature through music which combines jazz, Nordic folk and indie pop. Together with the groovy compositions and poetic lyrics of the bass player Jonathan the band’s music reflects on the joys, confusions and challenges of our world. Their 2nd album, TOIVO (which means “hope” in Finnish), will be released on 25th of June 2021 through BERTHOLD records.

“We need to remember: even if things sometimes appear troublesome, there is always hope.”
