"Jarmo Jalava writes songs rich in whimsy and wonder. There is a recognizable sound here-think of Bruce Cockburn's crisp melodicism and Daniel Lanois's low-burn intensity-but there is also a fresh voice.

Jalava has edge and intelligence, heart and soul. His music stays with you."

Charles Foran, music reviewer for the National Post

  • Transition Town

    Jarmo Jalava’s new single, Transition Town is a rocking 21st century environmental anthem that travels from apathy to awareness, and soars to inspired activism and hope.

    Transition Town - Official Video

    It's a cross of Aztec rythms, funk, rock and tango and recorded with Javier Carasusan, Alison Wearing, Charly Peña, James "Jimi" Doney and Grammy-winner, Marco Renteria.

    The single is available on iTunes!
