Où es tu, mon amour?

Where are you, my love? Here, obviously referring to the absence of live audience and the overall experience of doing this art together with real & actual people. Here's Aki & Laura w/ Julia Korkman in a beautiful video we shot and recorded live @ Alexander's Theater, Helsinki in April 2021. We'll also be doing a cool GIG with Julia next month so mark the date and prepare!

In support of the neglected professional musicians out of work without proper compensation during the pandemic. This landed Aki a spot in our nations biggest daily newspaper Helsingin Sanomat! The full story here.
