Jaakko Laitinen – Onnentähti

En ole varma onko tämä rokkia, mutta onko sillä väliä? Jaakko Laitinen ja Väärä raha sekoittavat useita genrejä, kuten Balkanin mustalaismusiikkia ja melankolista suomalaista kansanmusiikkia. Yhtyeellä on legendaarinen maine liveyhtyneenä Suomessa, mutta myös Suomen ulkopuolella.

I’m not sure if this is rock, but does it matter? Jaakko Laitinen and his band “Väärä raha” (“counterfeit money” in Finnish) mix all kinds of genres, such as Balkan qypsy music and melancholic Finnish folk songs. The ensemble has a legendary reputation as a live band in Finland and also outside Finland.
