In the spring of 2013 American New Images -label released the second vinyl record “Nouskaa henget” from Tsembla. At the same time Japanese EM Records released two records by Kuupuu, “Sisar” and “Sous juju”. We are celebrating these new sounds by organizing record release party at the Sorbus gallery, on Friday the 24th of May. Live music and brand new records on sale, welcome!
Tsembla is the musical work of Marja Johansson, a Swedish-Finnish artist living and working in Turku, Finland. Utilizing a wide range of instruments, electronics, objects and samples, the music of Tsembla rides on waves of warped melodies, rhythms and mutating textures, crossbreeding the known and the imaginary.
Kuupuu is the solo project of Finnish artist and musician Jonna Karanka. Kuupuu plays partly improvised spooky boogie with tapes, loops, toys, keyboards, effects and voices. Her live sets are time travels through unfound galaxies, deserted huts, nightmares, dirty doghouses, sweet cakes and cranberry lakes – letting the melodies find their own ways and settle or unsettle in the whole.
