OCTA 18th Anniversary – Viljami Kukkonen

Our anniversary festival comes back to Helsinki, Finland to meet up with singer-songwriter Viljami Kukkonen. His festival song is called Minä valvon nimeäsi and it’s an outtake from his 2012 album Mörönsyötti. Regular readers are probably well aware that this particular album is one of my all-time favorite Finnish albums (and you can throw all the other countries in there too). It has its sadness, but it’s also kind, beautiful, warmhearted and it carries me through the longer nights. I’m very honored to share this beautiful song as part of the anniversary week. This is also a perfect closer to our festival day 5. Back tomorrow for day 6 starting 7pm Finland and noon EST. But now let’s sway into the night in the arms of this lovely performance.
