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 this short time the choir has grown from a small hobby choir to a serious choir of around twenty singers. The choir has already achieved a valuable role in the Finnish community in the Netherlands.
TAIKA’s mission is to promote, often together with partners, Nordic culture and female choral music in the Netherlands. The choir has a wide repertoire, ranging from folk to pop, with an emphasis on Finnish and Nordic choral music. However, the choir enthusiastically performs songs from all around the world.
Recently, TAIKA has been busy recording its first album ‘Juuret’ (‘Roots’) in a professional studio in Hilversum. The album will be published later this spring.
At ‘Feel at Home in The Hague’ TAIKA will perform on the main stage at 15:40. We have selected some new and surprising songs just for you. Come and check us out!
The Feel at Home International Community Fair will be back in 2021!
