The new duo founded by Anna Haaraoja and Juha Seppänen plays folk music in an unprecedented way.
Old folk tunes encounter Seppänen’s synth backgrounds peppered with stadium-sized drum fills. With the violin and the kemençe Haaraoja paints the traditional Finnish scenery into the colors of synthwave – turquoise and purple.
Folk music always takes influence from the surrounding culture – Junna lands as a modern yet nostalgic part of the ever-changing folk music continuum.
The four-song EP, titled Folk.wav, will be released on streaming platforms on the 9th of December 2020.
