IRJALA is a Finnish country trio that also crosses over into other genres like country pop as well as Americana. The trio was founded by Liisa (lead vocals, guitar), Eeva (fiddle, ukulele, vocals) and Ville (piano, ac guitar and vocals) who all had some previous experience in country music. In Finland, country music has never been extremely popular, but lately it has seemed to gain some greater acceptance. Liisa and Ville have both traveled in North America to get some authentic inspiration.
IRJALA has gained some glory when playing gigs in little bars and venues in Tampere, which is considered as the country capital of Finland. It is not often you can hear country music with some sweet 3-part harmonies and a unique combination of instruments there.
Initially, IRJALA performed country covers only, but has recently started to play more and more original songs. All three band members write songs actively, usually about life's little ups and downs. At the moment, trio has about a dozen original pieces of music. You can listen IRJALA's songs on YouTube and Soundcloud.
