Tsembla is the musical work of Marja Johansson, a Swedish-Finnish artist operating out of Turku, Finland. Utilizing a wide range of instruments, electronics, objects and manipulated samples, Tsembla's music rides on waves of warped melodies, fluttering rhythms, abstract voices and mutating textures, crossbreeding the known and the imaginary. Nouskaa Henget (Spirits, Rise!) is her third release and follows the Tuplafiesta 7-inch, released by Jan Anderzén's Vauva label in 2009, and Fauna LP, on the Finnish Ikuisuus label in 2011. Loosely assembled, rough-edged compositions, rich in details, come together into odd instrumental miniatures in an almost pop format, venturing into fourth-world territory from a wheezing and boiling DIY kitchen inspired by Moondog, Ruth White, Raymond Roussel, LAFMS, Jon Hassell, Anton Bruhin, René Daumal, Suzanne Ciani and folk musics of the Andes and Asia. Two of the tracks feature flute wizard Antti Tolvi (Rauhan Orchestra, Lauhkeat Lampaat, etc.).
