Marja’s fifth studio album Polku (‘path’) will be released in 15. February 2007. This time the arrangements and production are made by Ilmari Issakainen and Tyko Saarikko, two members of the Finnish neofolk band Tenhi.
Marja Mattlar is as uncompromising in concert as she is in studio, preferring to perform solo with classical guitar in small rooms with no amplification. She has performed in this way in many small country villages throughout Finland and abroad, making full use of the intimate contact with the audiences. When the situation is right, Marja will also perform in larger spaces with amplification and a few backing musicians.
