World Music in Helsinki has got a new venue when Cross Borders Club started at UMO Jazz House in April.  The club is hosted by two immigrant artists, Robin DeWan and Jason Carter who were involved in TARU, an EU funded project for artists. Now TARU supports the club activity in cooperation with UMO Jazz House and Global Music Centre.

Cross Borders club showcases quality world music acts and gives audiences a chance to hear some of the best world beat, world fusion and roots recordings from around the globe. A journey across the musical wonders of the world awaits.

Stilimba (watch a video clip from the performance)

The first club evening features Stilimba, whose original, skilful and melodic world music can best be described as reaching from the coast of West-Africa via Scandinavia and the Caribbean Islands all the way down to South-America. The name Stilimba comes from the instruments steel pans and marimba. The sound of the band is characterized particularly by their original choices and combinations of instruments.

Stilimba´s first cd "Dale" is almost finished and a pre-release party for the cd will be held in connection with their concert.  "Dale" is Spanish and means Go! Come on!

Peali Mitra (watch a video clip from the performance)

Indian vocalist Peali Mitra will open the evening featuring Venkatesh Josyer (violin) and Sami Ronka (tabla).

Peali Mitra is a fantastic singer and artist of the All India Radio. She will be accompanied by a fellow artist of the All India Radio, Venkatesh Josyer, who will be making a rare appearance in Finland.

DJs Soma and Reso-Nation will be creating the atmosphere with exquisite selections for listening and dancing pleasure.  Also, Robin DeWan, the father of Cross Borders and didgeridoo player, will hit the stage.
