Auri - Auri

Auri is basically a trio, which features Finnish singer Johanna Kurkela along with Tuomas Holopainen and Troy Donockley from Nightwish.

Auri was born when three friends united through their shared need to hear a kind of a music which can‘t be described by words alone: a magical kind of sound to be heard whilst falling down Alice’s rabbit hole.
