KAMA Kollektiv is an Amsterdam-based group around Finnish vocalist/trumpeter Kirsi-Marja “Kiki” Harju, and band members from Israel, Germany and Finland. KAMA means "things" or "stuff" in Finnish and describes the subjects in the band's music.

The bandleader Kiki tells stories – some in Finnish, some in English – about love, transformation, small everyday things and pleasures & a mystical view of nature through music which combines jazz, Nordic folk and indie pop. Together with the groovy compositions and poetic lyrics of the bass player Jonathan the band’s music reflects on the joys, confusions and challenges of our world.

“We need to remember: even if things sometimes appear troublesome, there is always hope.”
