Event detail
Add to my calendar
Manala, which means netherworld in the Finnish language, is a journey representing a deep cultural rediscovery through the lens of music. Co-written and produced by composers Rent Romus and Heikki Koskinen, this original suite of music weaves the elements of jazz, neo-traditional Finnish, and free improvisation inspired by the mythic prose, rune poetry, and songs of cultural liberation and identity found in the Finnish epic known as the Kalevala and folklore of Finno-Ugric cultural shamanic traditions. Heikki "Mike" Koskinen - tenor recorder, e-trumpet (pictured on the right); David Samas - voice, percussion; Rent Romus - flutes, alto saxophone, percussion (left in photo).

This is a Performance program from SFPL. We host events featuring music, art, dance and more.
