FINLANDIA is a project formed by the Argentin Mauricio Candussi and Brazilian Raphael Evangelista. On stage, a fusion of South American rhythms with a focus on sounds little known outside of their original countries, like the Huayno, the Saya, the Baião, the Candombe and of course the Tango and the Bossa Nova. All those rhythms are mixed with contemporary elements played in live with cello, accordion, keyboard, electronic sounds wandering around for environments with choirs and instrumental voices. For this new show, the duo presents a spectacle with intense and vibrant repertoire of 5 album ... s, focused on their newest work, ranging afoxé to cumbia, without losing the essence of South American traditional music.
The Set List is created for each event. It depends on the audience, place and show the contractor's wish, but always inside the latin music electro enviroment.
Duo FINLANDIA release in 2015 his world's ¬fifth album with dates already confi¬rmed in Brazil, Latin America, Europe and Asia. The new album MUNDO RURAL dialogues with the South American traditional rhythms more deeply. This fusion sound granted them with several awards and featured in the press of 17 countries during their tours in Europe and Latin America. It also granted them with a selection with 3 world artists for the project SOFAR London Music and a selection among 30 emerging artists by Oi Novo Som. They received an award for best instrumental Brazilian artists 2011 by Hangar Music ... Awards and were invited to join the cast of the French agency VO Music, among great artists like Esperanza Spalding. "I've never seen a cello played like that" was written on the Brazilian press referring to the performance, where only two musicians realise a sound mass of rhythms that looks like a big band on stage, resulting in prominence on MTV Brazil that identified them as "the duo that worth a thousand".
