About us

Aino & Miihkali is a Finnish duo, whose global artistic expression branches out from North Karelian roots. Their music can be described progressive folk jazz combining Scandinavian sounds and influences from around the world, folktronica with some fairydust. Aino & Miihkali combines contemporary folk, pop aesthetics, afrogrooves, traditional poetry songs, jazz sounds, cinematic moments and progressive psychedelia. Their compositions are inspired by nature, mythology and poetry, and phenomena of our time. All those are flavored with fresh improvisation, chiming strings and interesting rhythm patterns. The songs are commenting and making observations of the world in a colorful way, and skillful playing and singing in voices are giving the final touch to the ensemble.

”We have travelled different paths, but had similar interests and ambitions; an innovative grip to our instruments, playful & imaginative musicianship, the past, the future, and how to seize the moment. Our voices are built on encounters, uncontrolled collisions and the most subtle impulses. ”

Aino & Miihkali duo started in 2017, and since then they have released their debut album “Aino & Miihkali” (2019) and singles “Akileijat” (2022) ”Siri’s Runaway” (2018) and ”Fireworks” (2019). They have also toured around Finland with 30 concerts of “Outside the Box” -tour in 2018, and on the release tour of their debut album in 2019.
