Ernest Ranglin & Friends

Kalle Kalima´s Long Winding Road

Sat 03.9. 19:00

The long and colourful career of Jamaican Ernest Ranglin is like no other: Ranglin got started with the early ska, calypso, reggae and dub bands of the 1950s and 60s and was involved in creating the soundscapes of those new and developing styles. Mixing virtuoso jazz guitar playing with a reggae beat, Ranglin has worked with practically all Jamaican music greats from Bob Marley and the Wailers to Jimmy Cliff and Lee “Scratch” Perry.

The farewell tour of 83-year-old Ranglin comes to Huvila Festival Tent with a true world music super band. Senegalese singer Cheikh Lô is one of the biggest names in West African music, and his unique voice has been charming audiences since the 1990s. Playing the drums is afrobeat icon Tony Allen, known for his work with Fela Kuti. Representing traditional jazz in the line-up are bass player Ira Coleman, who has worked with, for example, Herbie Hancock and Sting, and pianist Alex Wilson, a hot name in Latin jazz. Playing the saxophone is the group’s youngest star, the British Soweto Kinch.

The opening act, Kalle Kalima’s Long Winding Road, takes the audience on a voyage of discovery from free jazz to the world of Western melodies.

Kalle Kalima’s Long Winding Road starts at 7 pm. Ernest Ranglin & Friends starts at 8.30 pm.
Doors: 5.30 pm.

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.
