VIMMA – progressive folk for more sustainable future

VIMMA is a young art-pop ensemble from Helsinki combining Nordic folk with progressive rock. VIMMA creates a massive sound with specific arrangements while also leaving space for artistic interpretation and improvisation. The band’s music is mostly composed by its producer and violinist Pessi Jouste. Vimma is a Finnish word for furor and excitement that represents the artists’ passion for imagining utopian worlds and awakening their audiences to bring about change for a more sustainable future. Topical lyrics and spoken word poetry bring extra vitality and excitement to the energetic music.

VIMMA was selected as The Newcomer Of The Year at the Finnish Ethno Awards in 2020.

In October 2019 VIMMA released a debut album Meri ja avaruus (Space and Ocean, Eclipse Music). The melodic tales guide the listener through cinematic paths, into the delicate silence of the unpredictable woods of progressive rock. The lyrics paint mystical landscapes from the edges of the world. Timeless wavelengths refract in the cracks of interfaces, turning into polychromatic dialogues about the unfeasible and the feasible.
