Sata-Häme Soi is a colourful music festival that celebrates that most beloved of instruments in Finland, the accordion. This festival attracts both world class professional artists and capable hobbyists with a programme that includes a wide spectrum of concerts from pop to classical and special events for children.
Our splendid wintertime city festival will bring a wide range of Finnish and international artists to Oulu. Artistic Director Jaakko Kuusisto has prepared a programme of premiere performances, major productions, chamber concerts and club events, together with master classes in classical and rhythm music.
2018: The 20th festival will feature a special jubilee exhibition and publication, and our International Accordion Congress. Programme highlights will include Wu Wei (Germany/China), Pascal Contet (France) and Johanna Juhola (Finland) – with the Guardia Nueva tango orchestra naturally enjoying pride of place. This festival really brings out the extraordinary versatility of the accordion as a musical instrument in a classical, modern and light music context. The programme will also include dance, community singing and outdoor events.
