Johanna Juhola

Charismatic and playful accordionista Johanna Juhola conjures a magical world that blends Buenos Aires tango halls with dark Finnish forest landscapes. Laced with both melancholic nostalgia and uplifting exuberance, Johanna’s music is an original blend of contemporary tango and inventive use of electronica. A well-known face on the Finnish music scene, her openening piece commissioned for the 2007 Eurovision song contest was watched by tens of millions around the world. Johanna’s innovative performances with her quartet Reaktori captivate with their musical wizardry and cheeky theatricality.

The musicians are known from groups such as Rinneradio, Luomu Players, Ulla Tapaninen ja Nasevat Kurtut, Orkestar Bordurka, Spontaani Vire, Troka, Killer, Kraft and Duo Milla Viljamaa & Johanna Juhola.
