We are currently looking for a Graphic designer to finalise our CD cover. We will provide the material (pictures, texts etc.) but will need someone to make everything ready for the printing company.
Due to the growth and development of the choir, making its own CD has become a clear need for TAIKA. It will be the choir's own visiting card, and a story in itself. It will show who we are, where we come from, and what we do.
We promote Finnish music in a very international environment. For many of our concert guests, our choir performances are their first touch with the world of Finnish choral music. We try to present it in a versatile way, and this is why we have many folk songs in our repertoire, as well as works based on the poems of the Kalevala and Kanteletar. However, we want to present music in a youthful way, which is why the arrangements are often modern, fresh and youthful in spirit. The theme of the album is 'roots' ('juuret'), as the roots of all TAIKA singers living in the Netherlands lay in Finland.

TAIKA (meaning ‘magic’ in Finnish) is a The Hague-based all-Finnish female choir. It was founded in 2012 by its conductor Master of Music Karla-Maria Toiviainen. In just seven years the choir has grown from a small hobby choir of merely eight singers to a serious choir of more than twenty singers, and the choir has achieved a valuable role in the Finnish community in The Netherlands.
The choir has a wide repertoire, ranging from folk to pop, with an emphasis on Finnish female choral music. However, the choir enthusiastically performs songs from all around the world.
TAIKA’s mission is to promote, often together with partners, Finnish culture and female choral music in The Netherlands. Another important part of TAIKA’s mission is to provide a peer community for Finnish female singers.
