A dozen years ago, New York singer Nicole Willis lit the sky of Finnish soul. Last autumn she and UMO released the album My Name Is Nicole Willis to critical acclaim. Now it’s time to hit the road and navigate to Jyväskylä Festival! Conductor of this concert is Mikko Hassinen.

The music of Brooklyn-born Nicole Willis has been described an urban fusion of soul, jazz and funk. As a creative soul, she is inclined to break down traditional barriers. She is constantly searching for new sources of inspiration to make her music novel and exciting. Willis is best known from her collaborations with The Soul Investigators and Jimi Tenor.

At the same concert stage of Jyväskylä Festival will also be seen bands like Anssi Tikanmäki Orchestra, Jaakko Laitinen & Väärä Raha and DJ Ionik. Note the age limit of 18. For more information, visit www.jyvaskylankesa.fi

“[On the album My Name Is Nicole Willis] UMO creates a cinematic atmosphere. It evokes the gloss of the metropolitan skyscrapers in the movies of the 1970s.” – Helsingin Sanomat
