Marfa / Veera Ojola

Veera Ojola is a multifaceted writer and an artist concentrating on performative poetry. During the past years, she has performed in Veera&Ümit duo which combines spoken word and music. The Finnish broadcating company Yle published their spoken word video Hiljaisuus on Teko in September 2019. Veera also publishes rap music with the name Marfa.

Marfa combines rap, spoken word and singing in her performances. In her music, the poetic texts sail dreamily between genres. On the EP published last year, Kaikest mist jutellaa kun unta ei saa, Marfa’s lyrics move through pink clouds and secrets.
