PROMOTERS - WE ARE NOT ACTIVE IN GIGMIT - CONTACT US DIRECTLY VIA EMAIL: jaakko.laitinen@gmail.com Jaakko Laitinen & Väärä Raha (False Money) was born in 2009 by five Laplanders living in Helsinki.

Our music is a specialty marinated in many soups. You may hear echoes from Balkan gypsy music, Russian romances and old
Finnish humppa in our music. Our band consists of vocal, trumpet, bouzouki, accordion, double bass and drums. The songs are mainly our own compositions, with love and it´s bitter beauty as a main theme in lyrics, including other key elements of life, like mortality, the deceptive glow of memories, the swaying earthly happiness and the inexorable vanity of our ambitions. Joy and sorrow are engaged in our melodies and rhythms, just like in life itself.

Jaakko Laitinen & Väärä Raha was established in 2009 after which we have been touring hard around Finland from the village fairs very northern Lapland to the hippest dance floors of Helsinki plus 20 countries outside Finnish borders. We have played in big festivals with thousands of listeners as well as in shabby little pubs, in culture houses, in a living room, on streets, at weddings and in clubs. And always our music has won the hearts of lovers and dancers!
