Mystisen naaraan portti is an artist and a musical collaboration with a focus on the songs of Teemu Suuntamaa. The self-titled debut album was released in 20 March 2018. An EP, Joskus olisi talvi came out on 24 October, with four songs left for any reason out from the album compilation. Mystisen naaraan portti’s shady and warm acoustics are driven by the picked classical guitar of Suuntamaa with his gentle and strong vocal performance, instrumentation ranging from synthesizers to bandoneon, folk instruments to female vocalists. The music can be broadly located within the singer-songwriter, contemporary folk, or indie folk frameworks with a leaning toward electronic, ambient and experimental. At the center of expression remain Suuntamaa’s lyrics, rich with images, dealing poetically with love, death and such to visions of the night side of the mind.
As a project Mystisen naaraan portti has so far included the input of following musicians:
Miia Canth: vocals
Manuel Krapovickas: synthesizers, double bass
Mercedes Krapovickas: bandoneon
Jukka-Pekka Lilja: morin huur, guitar, mouth harp
Laura Naukkarinen (Lau Nau): glockenspiel, vocals
Teemu Suuntamaa: vocals, guitar, percussions, keyboards, bass
Mystisen naaraan portti performs in various constellations. Most often Teemu performs solo with a guitar. Live performance arrangements will differ from the ones on the record.
