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 since April.
While one of the original hosts Funky Ville, who launched the program along with Sami “Magic Sam” Mannerheimo, moved abroad and was replaced by Joonas “SoulllJay” Kervinen in the summer, the show goes on as usual every Tuesday from 5 pm to 7 pm. 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.
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.
