JOHAN AIRIJOKI

Tourné le 31 Juil. 2018 • Luleå
This is my second time in northern of Sweden, but my first time in Luleå.
I had recently discovered the music of Johan Airijoki
, who lives in Gällivare even further north in Lapland.
By chance he was in Luleå during this short journey, the opportunity to do a session with him.


We improvise to find a place to film and discover a museum of old trains : Norrbottens Järnvägsmuseum.
Sitting on the bench of a false station platform, Johan's bluesy notes are perfect for the scenography of the place.
An authentic style and an intense voice that I liked very much. He plays a first song "Meter Och Ton" from his second album.

 

Second place for a second song, nature here is very present and we choose to settle in the middle of a pine forest.
In a beautiful scenery Johan surrounded by tall trees plays the title "Kirkko" which appears on his latest album.
