Eva & Manu performing at Paloni's birthday party
When Paloni celebrated its first birthday last June, the French-Finnish duo Eva & Manu was a natural choice for that special evening’s performers. Their extraordinary story of traveling across Europe and creating their own music, and then turning that journey and its music into a debut album is just so inspiring. I think these musical talents are a good example of what it means to follow your passion, and how dreams can come true when you do what you want to do, and give your whole heart to it. You can read more about this amazing story from Eva’s and Manu’s blog Travel in music.
We had some good time at Paloni's birthday with Eva & Manu
Yesterday, I got the second chance to listen to the music by Eva & Manu live – they had their first gig performing their album songs with a band at the club Tavastia here in Helsinki. I love the perfectly beautiful music by this duo, but this time I also had a special reason for going to the gig – I anticipated that Eva would be wearing something from Paloni on the stage.
And she did. The Vietto Kimono top with printed sleeves. Maybe I’m subjective to say, but I think the natural white top really made her the center of all attention on the stage on the spotlights, and the flowy sleeves with printed details made each movement a part of the show – playing the keyboard and asking the audience to join a song with her hands.
It also happened that yesterday Minna Kaartinen, the designer of the label Vietto, brought a similar Kimono top to Paloni, only with different colors. Looks just as good to me!
