The CD Northern Attraction by wonderful musicians Reeta Maalismaa (violin), Jukka Harju (french horn), Sonja Fräki (piano) and Mari Palo (voice) has been released on Pilfink Records short time ago. It includes my trio Lairë for violin, horn and piano commissioned by Maalismaa and Harju some years ago. You can order this beautiful album straight from the recording company from this link.

Our new CD Hyperorganism has received very enthusiastic feedback. The largest Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat wrote: "In his compositions Kujala ventures joyfully in the whole universe... Frenetic groove, ethnic rhythms and uninhibited imagination carry away involuntarily." Music from the disc has already been played in several programs of the Radio 1 of the Finnish Broadcasting Company and their reviewer wrote: "The entirety is convincing, newest and most interesting music of our time... The music of Veli Kujala resonates in a startlingly fresh and uncompromisingly original way." The latest review was just a few days ago in the largest Swedish language newspaper of Finland, Hufvudstadsbladet: "Kujala moves effortlessly and inventively through different styles, ages and aesthetics... The music of Veli Kujala brings together universum, human, present and eternal perspective."
