Johanna Juhola (accordion) and Milla Viljamaa (piano)
are urban fusion-folk musicians of the young generation. They began their collaboration at the Folk Music Department of the
Sibelius Academy where they both continue to study in 2001. Most of the pieces at this moment are by Astor Piazzolla
and Johanna Juhola. Overall the duo´s repertoire does not have an overriding theme or any special restrictions to what they
perform: the duo´s idiosyncratic arranging and performing style merges influences from tango nuevo, jazz and the folk music
of various countries. There is also room for variation and improvisation.
In october 2002 the duo acchieved signifigant
recognition by winning the International "Città di Castelfidardo" Award Astor Piazzolla Music Section. Johanna and Milla have
also been appearing together with ´Tango Princess´ Kukka-Maaria Ahonen under the name Las Chicas del Tango since 2002.
Duo´s first album "Piazzolla Passage" was released
by Warner Music Finlandia Records in November 2003.
