Ojaj​ä​rvi Blom Ojaj​ä​rvi

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Ojajärvi Blom Ojajärvi is the first ever Finnish contemporary ensemble built around the traditional overtone flute, beatboxing and cittern. They mix their soundscapes in a soup bowl of unlikely instrument combinations, throwing in the ancient sound of overtone flutes, the modern yet grounded pulse of beatboxing, and the rich and earthy sound of the cittern.

    The ensemble started from an experiment where melodies from the ancient Finnish overtone flute were combined with different musical moods. This overtone lab focuses on the ancient tonal world of overtone flutes and other flutes with no tone holes. Ignoring genre or other limitations, it lets the flute sounds shine through beautiful melodic ambiances or trance-like beats. The trio’s repertoire includes both traditional tunes and original compositions.

    Janne Ojajärvi – overtone flutes, bass overtone flutes, vocals, jaw harp, didgeridoo, overtone-tuned harmonica, throat singing.
    Venla Ilona Blom – beatboxing, vocals.
    Joonas Ojajärvi – cittern, vocals, bass.

    Feat. Liisa Haapanen - cello, vocals
