Finnish music takes over Berlin
XJAZZ Berlin and We Jazz Helsinki present Scope Festival in mid-November, and it will have a strong focus on Finland in its first year.
The festival will take place at various locations in Berlin. Scope’s program boasts names like Jimi Tenor & KabuKabu, Timo Lassy & Ensemble X, Buba Wii Aa, Terzic / Kalima / Grimal, Jaakko Eino Kalevi, Noah Kin, Mirel Wagner and Jukka Perko Avara.
The music will be accompanied by Finnish drinks and delicacies, as well as talks with the artists.
Scope Festival is supported by The Finnish Institute in Berlin, Music Finland and the Embassy of Finland in Berlin.
Essi Kalima, head of cultural affairs at The Finnish Institute in Berlin, says that XJAZZ and We Jazz were logical partners for the event.
“Scope starts our initiative to bring Finnish music with a twist to Germany, in collaboration with likeminded events. An important part of the genre crossing program is also bringing together German and Finnish artists.”
