ILMOI is a trio with strong Fenno-Ugric roots coloured by Nordic traditions. Their music consists of long meditative archaic aesthetics while keeping the tight rhythmical interplay. The songs are both rugged and sensitive, rough and emotional, clear and airy, taking all these attributes to their extremes. Stories and spells are sung in three voices and in various languages, Finnish and Swedish being used the most.
Having storytelling in the centre, the trios original compositions and arrangements combine the groovy bass lines and the vibrant melodies of Finnish kantele with the expressive and rich sounds of cittern.
Anna Fält – vocals
Jenni Venäläinen – kantele, vocals
Joonas Ojajärvi – cittern, wind instruments, vocals
