Keepin’ the funky spirit alive!
Radio Majava started online in spring 2020 with the collaboration of several local music professionals. Elefanttiradio is the special show of the channel dedicated to black rhythm music and hosted by Funky Amigos every week.
Your hosts on air every Tuesday from 5 pm to 7 pm are Sami “Magic Sam” Mannerheimo and Joonas “Soullljay” Kervinen with occasional special shows also hosted by other Funky Amigos such as DJ Janski. Expect to hear loads of music from funk and soul to jazz, hip hop, reggae and various forms of black rhythm music from all over the world, hand-picked by your funky selectors. The latest 2-hour show (or one of the earlier ones) will be broadcasted as a rerun every Wednesday at 10 pm and Sunday at 8 pm. Selected broadcasts can also be listened on SoulllJay’s personal Mixcloud page.
Tune in! Inspiring musical experiences guaranteed every week from a wide scale of styles and decades. The programme features often Finnish artists as special guests as well. The interviews are mainly in Finnish.
Radio Majava was honored by the City of Helsinki as one of the best cultural activities in Helsinki in 2020. Radio Majava was also chosen as one of the candidates for the Radio Station of the Year 2020 in the Industry Awards of Music & Media.
