About us

Aino & Miihkali is a Finnish duo whose artistic expression transcends borders, stemming from their North Karelian roots. Their music is a captivating blend of progressive folk jazz infused with Scandinavian nuances and global influences, intertwined with elements of folktronica. Aino & Miihkali seamlessly weave together contemporary folk, pop aesthetics, afrogrooves, traditional poetry songs, jazz motifs, cinematic moments, and progressive psychedelia. Their compositions draw inspiration from nature, mythology, poetry, and contemporary phenomena, all seasoned with fresh improvisation, resonant strings, and intricate rhythmic patterns. Their songs vividly comment on and observe the world in a kaleidoscope of colors, while their masterful playing and harmonious vocals provide the finishing touches to their ensemble.



Formed in 2017, Aino & Miihkali have released their debut album ”Aino & Miihkali” (2019) along with singles ”Akileijat” (2022), ”Siri’s Runaway” (2018), and ”Fireworks” (2019). They have extensively toured Finland, including 30 concerts as part of the ”Outside the Box” tour in 2018 and their debut album release tour in 2019. In 2022, Aino & Miihkali embarked on a tour in Germany, followed by the Finnish Folk Music Association tour in Finland in 2023.

In addition to their touring endeavors, Aino & Miihkali showcased their innovative arrangements at the Konsta Jylhä competition in 2023 and began organizing their own multidisciplinary concert series. They have introduced the kantele and banjo to new audiences by collaborating with an impressive array of artists from different genres at the Aino & Miihkali Club in Karkkila.

The interdisciplinary Aino & Miihkali Club started as a hub for various art forms and diverse artists during the summers and autumns of 2023. They curated performances where artists from different disciplines converged, complemented by the enchanting sounds of kantele and banjo.
