Dr. Ammondt (created Jukka Ammondt) had been a senior when he started singing in an effort to cope with an agonizing divorce. In a bit more than a 10 years, the Finland-born vocalist, songwriter, ethnomusicologist, and College or university of Jyvaskyla lecturer on books has composed for lost period. Defying basic categorization, Ammondt offers taken very different methods to each of his recordings. Debuting having a tango solitary in 1992, he released a full-length tango recording, Surun Sirvet/The Wings of Sorrow, offering music by Finnish songwriter, Toivo Karki, the next yr. A Latin recording, Tango Triste Finnicum/Sad Finnish Tango, with tracks that Ammondt got translated with Dr. Teivas Oksala, received the Pope’s Medal in 1994. Ammondt got his passions in Latin many steps additional in 1994, liberating two must-be-heard-to-be-believed albums, The Tale Lives Forever in Latin, offering Latin-ized Elvis Presley music, and Rockin in Latin, offering American rock and roll & move oldies sung in Latin. He capped the entire year with his 1st tour of america. Going for a six-year hiatus from documenting, Ammondt re-emerged along with his most ambitious recording, Three Tracks in Sumerian, in July 2001. Performing inside a language that were spoken in historic Mesopotamia, but got become extinct around 1800 B.C., Ammondt displays his wit using the oddest edition of “Blue Suede Sneakers” you’re prone to hear. He offers collaborated with Reine Rimon & Her Sizzling Papas on New Orleans jazz-style adaptations of “Sumerian Hymn to Inanna,” and an Assyrian elegy.
