Babel’s Mäkiranta and Pykäri are one of the most praised indie musicians of the last decade in Finland. Known from his bands Regina and Shine 2009, Helsinki-based Pykäri is renowned for the impact on the rise of Finnish pop scene as a producer and visionary. Mäkiranta is part of indie band Karina, which was nominated for the Nordic Music Prize and received a five-star-review in addition to the title of being “one of the greatest Finnish debut albums in years”.
Babel brings the best sides of both Regina and Karina; the hazy dream-pop -influences, ethereal vocals, sluggishly soft drums and tones of guitar sounds from a few decades ago. Babel creates a safe haven where the listener can escape all reality.
The evening begins with a performance by Ada Aik, a rising star of experimental pop. Ada Aik is a solo project by Karin Mäkiranta, whose vocals and electronic music simultaneously sound thoroughly human and also mechanical. In her debut album "The Mysterious Life of Ada Aik" released in April 2022 by PME Records, the artist creates uncompromising experimental art, stretching the verges of fantasy and realism.
