A musical space The body holds everything and therefore we need rooms where everything can fit
MIKA AKIM explores the intuitive simplicity of songwriting with influences from early music, Nordic and American folk music. Working with free forms and raw, weird and beautifully acoustic sounds, the songs are honest with poetic lyrics, sung in Swedish and English.
MIKA has been described as a minimalistic Joni Mitchell and a musical sister to Sam Amidon and José Gonzalez. Playing the unusual instrument viola d’amore as a lead guitar, Mika writes free songs for the body and love. The debut album Till Kroppen was released in October 2020, played in Swedish, Danish and American radio and performed live in Sweden, Denmark, Czech Republic and Germany. Together with musicians Tove Bagge, Ossian Ward, Adam Grauman and sound engineer Åke Linton, Mika Akim has made a second album, Tillsammans that will be released the 7th October 2022.
