JONNE was formed as a solo project by Jonne Jarvela (Korpiklaani), which soon morphed and developed into a full band.
JONNE plays pure shamanistic folk music - something entirely different from the bombastic sound of Korpiklaani.
The album was recorded and mixed mainly in Jarvela’s home studio.
Jarvela has been active in the music scene for decades and formed his first band Shamaani Duo in 1993.
The band, which cherished the musical tradition of the Sami people, later evolved into Shaman and put out two full-length albums.
After this period, the metal influence took a bigger role, and thus the name Korpiklaani was chosen to represent the band.
Korpiklaani has released nine albums so far, accompanied by plenty of lengthy tours worldwide.
From starting out as a solo idea, JONNE grew into a real band with 9 other musicians from the Finnish folk music scene, featuring members of Amorphis, Shape Of Despair, Wabanag and Oceanwake.
