What role has your relationship with dance had in your artistic development and how does it influence your musical practice?

This is a very interesting question because I’m still answering it myself. One of the things I get a lot of compliments about when working with musicians is my timing. I have a very good sense of rhythm, which comes from my experience as a dancer and the fact that I had to be able to perform movements in perfect harmony with the tempo of the music.

You are regularly linked to “scandipop”. And how would you describe your style?

I would describe my style as the “Joalin” style. I didn’t really know Scandipop before I started making music, because I grew up in a Latin country… If these sounds are present in my songs it’s because I work with Finnish producers. For my part, I bring them the Latin sound!

You started very young in a band, Now United. How did you make your transition to a solo career and what did you learn from these early years of your career?

I have said on several occasions that I am evaluating Now United like my university, because I learned many things there. I achieved my biggest dream at 16… Now I know that I can truly do anything. It was interesting to go from being a dancer constantly surrounded by a large group of people to being a singer who has the final say on all decisions. I feel like I’m on the right path, that this is what I should do…

I have always felt calm near the sea, I have to live near water. I feel all my problems disappear when I look at the sea, it gives me clarity.

You are very popular on the networks. What role do they have in your life, in your artistic journey? Do you feel invested with some sort of responsibility towards your subscribers?

Yes, I have many young people who follow me, so I feel obliged to be an example. I don’t think I have to be perfect, but REAL. I want people to see that anything is possible. My social media followers have opened so many doors in my life that I don’t think I would be making music today if it weren’t for them. I will be forever grateful to them.

What can we wish you for the future?

I would like my music to cross all borders, to gradually expand my community. I also just did a performance that I really enjoyed, so I hope to perform again and again! And then I hope there is more sun this summer…
