Since 2013, Journeys Festival International has been seeking to create a platform for artists from sanctuary seeking backgrounds and stage a showcase to share artistic talent, community cultural exchanges, and live events.
Together with audiences and artists they explore our different journeys, cultures, migration, and the world around us.
Undocumented Love is an evening of live music from Finnish duo Sanna and Ali, who perform Middle Eastern folk and pop music as well as new arrangements and original compositions. The show is produced by the Finnish National Theatre.
Ali Saad and Sanna Salmenkallio are an Iraqi-Finnish duo, exploring Arabic and European culture through music. In their work, ancient Arabic poetry and decorative styles meet Northern minimalism to create a spellbinding new sound.
