Helsinki-based Ivah Sound has served bass music fans as well as Jamaican sound system culture in Finland since 2010. They have gained nearly a legendary status during the years with their numerous events, shows, block parties and underground happenings.

The uniqueness of sound system culture can be recognized with the building and design work of Ivah Sound collective, consisting of seven artists, which they have done themselves from the very beginning. In their work they respect the traditions as well as add new local influences, such as the use of Finnish birch wood in the materials of their speakers.

This year’s Funky Elephant presents a great opportunity for the festival audience to hear the sound and visiting artists of Ivah Sound as well as the deejay sets focusing on reggae, dub and steppers but also jungle and drum & bass. JK
