Tuuletar and VILDÁ performing at WOMEX World Music Expo 2019

Tuuletar & VILDÁ at WOMEX 2019

WOMEX The World Music Expo celebrates this year its 25th anniversary and arrives for the first time in Finland, Tampere on 23rd – 27th October 2019.

Among a fascinating line-up of showcasing artists from all around the world, Saura Booking Agency will represent two internationally succeeded acts, VILDÁ and Tuuletar. Both artists are signed with the award-winning independent record label and publisher Bafe’s Factory.

Tuuletar is a vocal folk hop group that creates  a vivid sonic landscape of beatbox rhythms, other-worldly harmonies, art pop and global folk influences. In 2016 Tuuletar gave an exclusive radio concert in WOMEX  for the EBU Live Sessions, hosted by NRK and BBC. At WOMEX Tuuletar will perform on the regional stage titled Northern Connections. The stage will showcase musical talent not just from the Nordic region but also from neighbours near and far from Estonia, Lithuania, and others. 

The Arctic Fire – Pohjoiset tulet opening concert will introduce VILDÁ, a duo that is a blend of indigenous Sámi yoik, detailed rhythms and improvisation, inspired by present-day pop and the Sámi people’s close connection to nature. VILDÁ’s debut album was released in April (Bafe’s Factory) this year the duo tours in Spain, France and Canada.

Two Ethnogala triumphs to Saura Booking Agency artists

Tuuletar Etnogaala 2019

Tuuletar – Border Breaking Act of the Year 

The export award goes to an act that has aroused interest in the international music field and demonstrated export-readiness and was awarded by Music Finland.

The female a cappella quartet were chosen for the quality and originality of their music. They are drawing on Finnish traditions in a new and innovative way, but they were also selected because they are absolutely export ready. Indeed they’ve already performed in many countries in Europe (including Germany, Hungary and the UK) and as far as India and Japan. They’ve also had their song ‘Alku’ used in the fantasy TV megahit, Game of Thrones. Their management team and record label, Bafe’s Factory, are very active and effective in promoting their music. Tuuletar are a young band with great potential and we hope the Ethnogala’s Border Breaking award will help spread their name internationally.

Solju – Folk Music Creator of the Year

The Folk Music Creator of the Year is a Finnish composer or lyricist who has raised the bar for folk music through multi-faceted, ambitious work. The prize was awarded by Finnish Music Creators.
