You get SEMMARIT one of the most famous show groups in Finland. The live show of this a cappella group of 18 men is a mixture of music, humour, dance and drama, spiced with guts, glory and the latest audiovisual technology. A trademark of this group is a visually effective, mind-blowing live performance. It´s not a band, it´s not a choir – it´s something else for you to figure out!
The group has made various tours abroad including Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Scotland, Estonia, Portugal, U.S. and Canada. During 2010-2011 Semmarit visited China four times for various tv and live performances. It has also had its own TV shows and twice a top 40 number 1. selling album in Finland. Semmarit has published 10 CDs and two DVDs.
