Music from all over
Maria Gasolina is a world music band from Finland. We perform foreign dance and rhythm music translated into Finnish. We interpret these pearls in our own a bit peculiar groove, never in a too orthodox manner. Our goal is not just to play music we enjoy, but also to introduce Finnish audience to new sounds and stories that would otherwise stay strange to them.
We have published three albums (and a c-tape) concentrating mostly in brazilian music. Lately we have been playing music from North- and East Africa and Middle East. This year we have also co-operated with some asylum seekers from these areas. In 2017 we are going to publish a new record with this material hoping to build new bridges between people in Finland.Videos
