Soulfulness with Oaklyn, Dolla Lova & The Man (FIN) Featured

Written by 

In the back streets of Helsinki, in the Stereotype Studio, the rebirth of Finnish soul has begun with a trio of bands.

We traveled from Sweden to Finland to discover more about the new Finnish Soul Collective.

Oaklyn, Dolla Lova & The Man.

Now, sitting on a cool leather sofa, the morning after having performed at SemiFinal, are Heini Ikonen (lead singer - Dolla Lova), Sami Tammela (Oaklyn, Producer), Ilmo Ylinärä (lead singer - The Man) and Ben Rogers (Producer/ Guitarist The Man), relaxed and refreshed.
