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 crows and clatters, whispers and rustles. In this art-pop in the spirit of Finnish folklore, sempiternal melodies mix with the young Helsinki-based artists’ reflections on our hectic contemporary world.

VIMMA invites the listener into an irresistible sway, occasionally pausing in to ponder in quiet pools of thought. VIMMA urges you to set yourself free and to surrender to its forcefield.

The shared melodic tales of the violins and the saxophone 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.

In October 2019 VIMMA released a debut album Meri ja avaruus (Space and Ocean, Eclipse Music). VIMMA is nominated for The Newcomer Of The Year at the Finnish Ethno Gala 2020.
