"She bridges the gap between ancient mythology and contemporary expression…(Vaskilintu) facilitates transformational experiences, that journey through the physical, spiritual and emotional realms of being."
- Biohacker´s Summit


"Vaskilintu" means the brass copper bird in Finnish, a word that perfectly encapsulates the duality of the softness and strength of Magdalena Sofia's unique voice. Vaskilintu is an Afro-Finnish vocalist combining influences from both her Somalian and Finnish Karelian roots. She performs traditional Finnish poems and spells, which she learned from her upbringing in Finland.

The project is deeply inspired by the animist roots of Finnish folklore, in which everything has a spirit, or a "väki" - from nature and the elements to the steam in the sauna. Vaskilintu explores and reconnects these timeless concepts to contemporary society. In a unique soundscape that combines modern electronic music with rhythmic instruments and strings, her voice shines at the center with vocal layers and looping that bring the audience into a hypnotic trance. The result is raw, primal, and true, making each performance a deep and unforgettable journey.

You can find Vaskilintu conducting a song ceremony inside a sauna, facilitating a vocal nature immersion workshop at a Biohacker's retreat, or performing and curating a commissioned piece for the Cultural and Educational Ministry of Finland. She has had great success touring all over Finland as a part of the popular duo LOVI Ritual with multi-instrumentalist and throat-singer Mikko Heikinpoika. She is currently offering retreats, courses and vocal workshops internationally while working on her solo debut SADE to be released in 2024.



"Magdalena is a gifted vocalist, ceremonial musician and facilitator.
Driven by a deep reverence for the therapeutic potential of ceremonial music, Magdalena finds inspiration in the intricate interplay between music and healing. Her evocative melodies possess a profound ability to traverse the emotional landscapes of the human psyche, transcending cultural boundaries. As a performer, she bridges the gap between ancient mythology and contemporary expression. Her vocal renditions carry echoes of times long past, invoking the primal and archaic roots of human experience. Magdalena facilitates transformational experiences, that journey through the physical, spiritual and emotional realms of being. She offers retreats, courses, sharing circles and vocal workshops in Finland and internationally."
