UIRA

The rich harmony, clear and warmly resonant singing voices, and unique combination of instruments make Uira a one-of-a-kind ensemble that cannot be found elsewhere.

As storytellers, Uira's musicians Juulia Karppi, Linda Pennström, and Emma Pitkänen create an intimate atmosphere. In their hands, centuries-old songs gain a contemporary glow and, together with newer compositions, form a cohesive program.

The core of Uira's instrumentation is formed by guitar and violin, but in addition, one can hear wind instruments and other surprising sound sources on stage.
