Power pop band Kristiina performs at Radio Helsinki Kesälive.

Kristiina is a power pop band founded in 2022 by Kristiina Tuhkanen, also known from the band Tamara Luonto. Kristiina combines melodic Finnish rock with classic rock music, where the narrative touches on identifiable themes such as falling in love, friendship, jealousy and death. The instrumentalists include Joni Ekman, Essi Nieminen, Hilla Kohtamäki and Joel Hyttinen.

The debut album, Palavan rakkauden aika (2023), found an immediate audience and a follow-up is expected.


Free concerts are held at Musiikkitalo’s terrace on summer afternoons from Wednesday to Saturday, May 29th to Aug 3rd.

The concerts feature talented musicians from the Sibelius Academy of the University of Arts Helsinki, as well as concerts presented by HelsinkiMissio, Organ Night & Aria and World Music Centre. The genres and music vary daily: mostly classical or folk music on Wednesdays, jazz on Fridays and pop on Saturdays. On Thursdays of May and June, the program will be provided by Radio Helsinki Kesälive.
