NEW ALBUM HACHI
HACHI (2021) is the result of a rather spectacular musical journey made by vocalist Anni Elif, saxophone player Pauli Lyytinen and sound engineer Joonas Saikkonen. The album features eight phenomenal drummers
[Olavi Louhivuori (FI), Andreas Werliin (SE), Terje Isungset (NO), Lisbeth Diers (DK), Marc Pell (UK), Julian Sartorius (CH), Yuko Oshima (FR), Ryosuke Kiyasu (JP)] in as many countries.
The music was created on the spot together with each drummer in various unconventional locations: a mausoleum, a water tower, a lake next to a forest and so on.
The long awaited double album is now available on vinyl, cd and on digital platforms!
Sweden: Gold Dust is the second single from Elifantrees forthcoming album HACHI and is featuring the Swedish drummer Andreas Werliin.
Finland: Black Sheep is the first single from Elifantrees forthcoming album HACHI and is featuring the bands original drummer Olavi Louhivuori.
BLOOD MOON 2019
ELIFANTREE & TÖLÖLÄB
The album BLOOD MOON is a collaborative recording together with the electroacoustic ensemble Tölöläb.
“The encounter of these seven brilliant musicians is no show off but a concentrated listening experience.
Tölöläb's and Elifantree's musical meeting is a successful experiment that brings hope for the future of Finnish art music.”
(Aki Yli-Salomäki, Yle Klassinen 2019)
Blood Moon was nominated for "Record of the Year" by the Finnish Broadcasting Company and was also chosen as one of the best albums 2019 by Finnish Music Quarterly.
