Beautiful Spikes is a concert by Maria Ylipää and Emma Salokoski, two of the brightest stars of the Finnish music scene, whose roots lie in the duo’s Omani uni project from the early 2000s. The concert features a bilingual collection of existing poems and compositions, as well as poems and compositions written especially for the ensemble.

Musically, the composers and performers of the Beautiful Spikes album and the concert of the same name are chameleons in their field. They are able to move naturally from one style to another, flavouring their music with improvisations. The concert features pieces by Anna-Mari Kähärä, Lauri Salokoski, Marzi Nyman and Pekka Kuusisto, among others. The lyricists include Heimo Hatakka, Sofi Oksanen, Ingrid Sjöstrand and Edith Södergran.

Maria Ylipää, a singer and actress, has played several leading roles in musicals (e.g. Wicked, Kristina från Duvemåla, West Side Story), TV series and films. Her voice has also been heard in numerous animated films. Ylipää performs with her own ensemble Maria Ylipää & Friends and appears as a soloist with symphony orchestras and big bands.

Emma Salokoski has had a long career as a recording artist. She is best known for her song “Veden unter”, which has already had close to six million streams. Salokoski has recorded widely with Quintessence, Ilmiliekki Quartet, Don Johnson Big Band and Emma Salokoski Ensemble. She has performed her music in contemporary dance productions and conducts the Emma Salokoski Voices choir, with whom she has created interdisciplinary projects and musical theatre. She has also performed as a soloist with several symphony orchestras and big bands and has appeared in many television concerts.
