Manna, a singer/songwriter born in Paris to a Finnish mother and an Algerian father, spent most of her childhood travelling between France, Algeria and Finland. Now based in Helsinki Finland, Manna is working on her sophomore album ( ”Songs Of Hope And Desire” out in Finland fall 2009) , creating a sound that mixes her love of singing, raw guitar sounds and melodies. In her own words: ” I am not interested in creating anything except heartfelt music, it can be either beautiful or just plain aggressive – often both. I grew up listening as much folk and blues music than I loved the early New York punk scene bands and 90s britpop. Anyway, there should be no rules when it comes to making music, it’s when you let go of them and follow your intuition that it starts getting interesting. Sound is god and I love music.
