Rent Romus and Heikki Koskinen
’s debut of “Manala”, a musical adventure weaving the elements of jazz, Finnish folk, and free improvisation inspired by the mythic prose of cultural liberation and identity found in the Finnish National Epic known as the Kalevala as well as folklore of Finno-Ugric shamanic traditional stories. 
This epic debut will take place at the newly restored historic Berkeley Finnish Hall presented as part of the Finnish Heritage Society’s spring cultural events programming performed by Rent Romus' Life’s Blood Ensemble.
Performing Artists:
Timothy Orr- drums, percussion
Rent Romus - alto & soprano saxophone, flutes, kantele, bells
Heikki "Mike" Kosikinen - e-trumpet, tenor recorder, kantele
Mark Clifford - vibes
Cheryl Leonard - invented instruments
gabby fluke-mogul - violin
Max Judelson - double bass
Joshua Marshall - tenor & soprano saxophones
Safa Shokrai - double bass

Manala or Tuonela is the metaphysical netherworld of the dead in the Finnish Kalevala or Jabmeaivo in Sami traditions. It is a place opposite of the land of the living, a place that contains answers to mysteries of the universe for the Noaidde or Noita (shaman) in Fino-Ugric cultures. It can be very dangerous for a living person to journey there, and only the most experienced shaman may successfully emerge from its dark waters richer in knowledge and song for the experience.
