Islaja: Pimeyttä kohti from Sami Sänpäkkilä on Vimeo.

Islaja is the recording alias of Merja Kokkonen, a musician and visual artist from Helsinki, currently based in Berlin. Her fourth album “Keraaminen Pää” will be released September 14th 2010 on Fonal Records. It bears witness to a shift in perception and execution; yet the thread that weaves it’s way through all Islaja’s work remains resolute, visible and intact.

Sami Sänpäkkilä has directed a music video for the first single “Pimeyttä kohti” released from the new album. It was shot with a crew of four people and almost zero budget. Read more about the shoot here: http://samisanpakkila.com/2010/09/islaja-pimeytta-kohti/
