MADE IN FINLAND! EXPLORING AND ARCHIVING
THE SOUL OF FINNISH MUSIC
Delivered by Toni-Matti Karjalainen
In October 2019, the new Music Museum and Finnish Music Hall of Fame was opened in Helsinki and has attracted a high number of visitors to its unique facilities. FAME offers a multisensory experience for music lovers covering genres from three centuries, from symphonies to Finnish rap music to folk and heavy rock. Toni-Matti Karjalainen presents snapshots from the museum and talks about the peculiar history of Finnish popular music, exploring the “soul” of Finnishness that emerges across different musical genres and scenes.
Dr. Toni-Matti Karjalainen is Docent in Management of Music and Culture Export (Aalto University, Helsinki). He is Member of the Advisory Board in the Music Museum FAME. Karjalainen is also currently co-editing and writing a book titled Made in Finland: Studies in Popular Music for Routledge.
