Finnish Reggae

So, i found myself tonight at Klubi, at a Finnish Reggae concert, yes: Finnish people singing Reggae in Finnish. We went with the two best Finnish girls that we know, Anniina and Marianne. It was a bit strange, seeing these "white" people with their long blond rasta hair, doing something that was more common to "black" people [no racial connotations implied]. In the end it was an awesome show, they really pulled it off, and the guy can sing really well. Their style was utterly unique, with a slight hint of the Finnish rock culture in there.

It's just a bit odd for me, that i actually enjoyed it, knowing that i never had any particular liking toward reggae before. This European Erasmus journey really redefines you as a person, and allows you to open up and accept various cultures, music, and people.

Hi Jevin,
