Orkesta Mendoza

Janne Haavisto & The Shubie Brothers

Thu 24.8. 19:00

Latin Big Band Fun! The group headed by Sergio Mendoza delightfully fuses together music styles from both sides of the USA-Mexico border: merengue, rumba, ranchera and cumbia mix with tex mex and tejano.

Born in Mexico, Mendoza crossed the border at the age of 8 and is currently one of the biggest influences in Arizona’s versatile music scene. Mendoza has been a major figure in, for example, the state’s number one band Calexico’s desert noir style and Mexico’s throbbing indie scene, for example, as a background force in Mexrrissey, who charmed the audience last year at Huvila.

Mendoza labels his own band’s style as “indie mambo” and is famous for their wild Latin parties: Cuban rhythms, percussion, harmonicas and horns are, at times, boosted by the infectious beat from drum machines.

The evening kicks off with drummer Janne Haavisto and his new band The Shubie Brothers. Haavisto is best remembered from the cult band Laika & The Cosmonauts and for his long collaboration with J. Karjalainen.

The Shubie Brothers starts at 7 pm. Orkesta Mendoza starts at 8.45 pm.
Doors: 5.30 pm.

 

For this event you can purchase a snack by Restaurant Juuri beforehand!

Huvila Festival Tent

Huvila Festival Tent

Tokoinranta (Hakaniemi)
Eläintarhantie 8

Important! Please dress appropriately. The tent is not fully wind proof and may be draughty.

The Huvila Festival Tent is the Helsinki Festival’s dedicated hub and a unique cross between a concert hall and a traditional festival marquee. Designed by architect Roy Mänttäri, the tent has been erected every year since 1995 at a variety of locations across the capital. The Huvila programme, encompassing everything from intimate concerts to riotous club nights, is a valuable addition to the city’s music scene. Huvila is particularly known for its strong world music offering and for providing an early platform to lesser-known artists. Past Huvila acts include Radiohead, Cesaria Evora, Marc Ribot, Laurie Anderson & Lou Reed, Wilco, Hugh Masekela and Yoko Ono & Thurston Moore.

As the name suggests, Huvila is a tent and the weather can sometimes lend its own special charm to the proceedings. Sounds from outside the tent can sometimes be heard during performances. Don’t forget to bring a warm layer, as the nights in August can be chilly. The Huvila season coincides with the end of the summer season and to make the most of it, there is usually dancing on most nights!

The tent comprises an atmospheric restaurant, the perfect place for enjoying the August nights post-concert. Catering is provided by Helsinki’s highly-acclaimed Juuri restaurant.

Events at the Huvila Festival Tent are for adults aged 18 and over. Younger guests can be admitted provided they are accompanied by a guardian. The age restriction does not apply to the daytime concert.

The performances start at 19:00 and finish no later than 22:00.
