Young Artists of the Winter: The Ojajärvi Blom Ojajärvi (OBO) Col­lec­tive

The Young artists of the spring series presents recent graduates and students of the Sibelius Academy of Uniarts Helsinki who have excelled in their studies.

The music of the OBO collective stems from the fascinating vibrant tones of overtone flutes and the stream of consciousness they inspire.

Traditional melodies and new pieces composed for the overtone flute adapt to the enchanting dance of the natural tone scale.

The ensemble is shaking the dust off the ancient Finnish overtone flute. In the OBO collective concert, the Finnish overtone flute serves as a melody instrument, a chord instrument and a voice instrument, displaying this rarely-utilised folk instrument as a worthy band instrument.

The concert celebrates the release of the first album by the Ojajärvi Blom Ojajärvi and the expansion of the trio into the OBO collective.
