Jaakko Laitinen & Väärä Raha (False Money) was founded in 2009 by five Finnish Laplanders living in Helsinki. The band's music is an unique fusion world music of various ingredients marinated in special sauces, main elements being the Balkan Roma grooves, Russian romances and old Finnish tango and humppa. The band consists of vocal, trumpet, bouzouki, accordion, double bass and drums. The songs being 99 % 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 the rhythms and melodies, just like in life itself.
