Tijn Wybenga writes intense musical, touching notes, rich and ripe, highly personal and specific. His craftsmanship is indisputable, as he proved with his multidisciplinary performance Prikkel. The combination of Wybenga’s music and the characteristic improvisations by acclaimed musicians such as Kika Sprangers, Vuma Levin and George Dumitriu, has been described as ‘a mindblowing musical escape room.’

KAMA Kollektiv is the qroup around young Finnish singer and trumpet player Kirsi-
Marja “Kiki” Harju. The word KAMA is Finnish for “things” or “stuff”, and it describes
what the band’s music is about: the small things in life that are often so easily
Kiki tells stories – some in Finnish, some in English – about love and transformation,
forests and animals, small everyday pleasures, and a mystical, romantic view of
nature. The music is a mesmerizing mixture of jazz, Scandinavian folk and indie
pop. It takes you on a journey to fabulous lands and intense emotions. The band is
based in Amsterdam, but Kiki’s songs are full of memories of the beautiful
landscapes, dark forests and the icy frost of her homeland, Finland.
KOTI is the title of KAMA Kollektiv’s first album, which is a Finnish word for “home.”
The group’s four musicians grew up in Finland, Israel, Germany and the
Netherlands, but they now all chose Amsterdam as their haven. Life experience has
taught Kiki that home is more than a physical location. It is a feeling, a conception
and most importantly, trust. And, after all, the band mates’ friendship also creates
a feeling of being home, away from home. We invite you to share that feeling
through our concerts and music.
