The Blassics

The Blassics play original funk with afrobeat elements. The band coming from Hämeenlinna in Finland perform probably the grooviest Ethiopian jazz-inspired music I've ever heard in my life. At this occasion, the seven-piece live band was part of a Funky Amigo event at the urban food district Teurastamo in Helsinki.

MC DJ Bunuel

Master of ceremonies at the main stage of the Funky Elephant Festival was no other than DJ Bunuel (aka Måns Strömberg). In the mid-seventies, he started as DJ and has been making programs for numerous radio stations. Also, he had a TV show presenting the Finnish Top40. In the nineties, he was one of the pioneers using the CD player as an instrument and has appeared in bands projects such as The Rasmus, RinneRadio, Linda Lampenius, Cool Sheiks, Lenni-Kalle Taipale, Giant Robot and much more. At this image, he is to introduce the British Soul legend, Omar.
