About the Artist: 

Jemina & Selina

Finnish sisters Jemina and Selina Sillanpää are performing at the 30A Songwriters Festival for the fourth time, singing and playing original songs and some traditional music with strong emotion and edge.

Soulful, energetic and lyrically rich, these sisters’ roots stem from the American folk, roots, gypsy and Finnish traditional music the two grew up around as children. Jemina and Selina are both strong singers with a captivating stage presence. When they sing harmonies, it’s easy to hear that they have been singing together all their lives.

Jemina and Selina have released many albums. The latest one, ́Rajamailla ́ contains original songs and was produced by New York- based Tim Ries (The Rolling Stones). After the album was released, Jemina and Selina toured in Finland, USA, Canada and England playing a number of sold-out shows and receiving great reviews.

Besides their music career, Selina has worked as a lecturer in several universities and Jemina has worked as an actress in film and theater in Finland. Last spring, they collaborated on a performance for the Finnish National Theatre with over a hundred performers which Jemina directed and Selina composed and arranged the music for.

Currently Jemina & Selina perform as a duo, trio and full band in Europe as well as in the States and are working on a new recording that will be released in 2018.
