Toukokuun klubille vieraaksi saapuu legendaarinen Marjo Leinonen!


The acclaimed Django Collective Helsinki - club at Tenho!

Django Collective Helsinki is a group of skilled professional musicians sharing the love for the passion and expression of Gypsy Jazz music. The Collective started out in 2011 and have since steadily been performing at jazz festivals, clubs and private occations. They're also known for hosting jam sessions in Helsinki which were a phenomenon of sorts for a decade. At the monthly recurring club in Tenho the group plays the romantic, traditional and good-humored Gypsy Swing in the styles on Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli from the 30-50’s. The group is also merging the tradition with modern, more creative qualities of jazz expression with it’s own original compositions, bringing into being the possible future for this type of music in a fresh way.

Marjo Leinonen is one of the most legendary Finnish roots music artists. She is known as a charismatic and enchanting live performer whos' performances are grooving, entertaining and full of sparkling energy. When she was younger, she was often called Finland's Janis Joplin, which has strongly defined her image ever since. Leinonen's career began as the singer of the popular Finnish band The Balls at the end of the 1980s. The band played strong blues rock and rhythm'n'blues. What will happen when Marjo's creative power collides with swing music and jazz? Billie Holiday's sound isn't necessarily far when that happens, although comparing Marjo to other icons should be pointless. Leinonen is one of the Finnish icons of rhythm music in her own right.
