Sampo Lassila NARINKKA is a dynamic, virtuosic and new-seeking trio, which music can be called with a new term: ”suomiklezmer”.
(Suomi being the Finnish word for Finland). Trios music, composed by the leader Sampo Lassila, is new, Finnish and European world music and klezmer, acoustic worldjazz, that mixes a wide range of influences from traditional jewish and balkan folk music even to contemporary chamber music and jazz - with distinctive Finnish-sounding melodies and soundworlds, Finnish mentality, humour and musical stories.
It would be too easy to call this music just neoklezmer, the idea is much more open. The musical multicultural heritage in the Finnish urban environment is the root idea of Sampo Lassila’s music. Interestingly between the eastern and western Europe, the Finnish cities have had their own quite special mixture of musical cultures.
Narinkka was grounded by Sampo Lassila in 2010. The debut-album raised straight up to 4th place in the World Music Charts Europe in February 2013. Also was this album scored 16. in the World Music Charts Europe for the whole year 2013, being the most successful Nordic album in the year 2013. Narinkka has toured in Germany, Iceland, Sweden and Finland. In the beginning of 2016 the trio was accepted to the artist roster of german agency Tomato Production. The second album of the group, ’In Strange Lands – Vierailla mailla was published in Finland in March 2016 and raised several international world music charts.
