Combining synth-pop, folk, funk, and psych-rock into trippy experimental pop, multi-instrumentalist Jaako Eino Kalevi developed his distinctive own brand of songwriting. Having performed at Eurosonic Noorderslag in 2014, his 2015 self-titled album arrived via Domino imprint Weird World and was greeted with universal acclaim. Over 2016, Kalevi performed live from Los Angeles and Mexico to a wide range of European countries.
