Islajas hypnotic, beautiful music on the Seaside Stage during SUPERBOOTH18. Islaja is Merja Kokkonen: a composer, performer and recording artist based in Berlin, Germany. Since her debut in 2004, she has released several albums on Finland’s Fonal Recordsan and other labels. The most recent album Tarrantulla came out on Svart Records in December 2017.
She earned quick praise in the international music press for her unique vocal style and daring DIY approach to music composition – which you can hear on this video recording. In addition to her solo work, she also performs with Monika Werkstatt, an all-female collective of international artists founded by Gudrun Gut.
