Kari Aalto, lead singer of Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät -band, has founded a new reggae band called Kari Aalto & Rastakarai. The band’s back-beat serves authentic Jamaican sound. The spirit and rhythm of Bob Marley and Peter Tosh are strongly present in the band’s sound and Kari’s unique vocal interpretations. Kari has a big and ferocious band full of talents. His texts crystallize the deepest purpose of humanity and remind people that love & peace is all that we need. People should just love each other more.
Curators’ comment: Kari Aalto & Rastakarai’s material is good and catchy summer music and a great new wave of reggae. Kari’s voice is gorgeous and it’s great to see that Kari didn’t rust even it’s been four years since PKN stopped. We love Kari’s voice!
