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.

Aarhus Docklands

Coming from the sea to Aarhus reveals newly established district Aarhus Docklands (2007) which is located in the harbour area. The construction site started developing new residential buildings the very same year it was founded. One of the first buildings finalised is the ISBJERGET residential living complex (2013) designed and developed by four architectural firms, the Danish CEBRA and JDS Architects, French Louis Paillard and Dutch SeARCH. The building especially attracts attention as to its shape, form and colour, standing much out from any other residential building in the world.
