Mika writes acoustic songs for viola d’amore and other sounds. After many years of longing for this project to happen, it finally started out when Mika found a Viola d’amore outside of Prague during a visit. She started writing simple songs on the theme ‘To my body’ as a healing gift to herself and to everyone that might need it. 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. She mixes songs with honest and poetic lyrics, sung in Swedish and English, with instrumental songs without words. Mika Akim is often joined by Tove Bagge on viola, voice and other sounds and Ossian Ward on guitar, voice and drums.
Debutalbum ‘Till Kroppen’ will be released in 2020.
