I’ve been dedicating this autumn and early winter for online stuff as well as visiting some native Finno-Ugric, Central-Asian and Siberian related music events for inspiration. In this post I will tell about some latest news and upcoming radio shows.

Electroacoustic jamming sessions in a yurt

Last month Hiiden Virren Vinguttajat had an intimate portable electroacoustic jamming session in a suburban yurt in Tampere. I was playing my shaman drum. Here is some footage..

The circle shape of the yurt, the stove and the candles definitely gave the place a special feeling and sacred energy. I could understand why shamans use yurts for their ceremonies. We’re hoping to do this kind of session again sometime in the future!
