Johanna Juhola (b. 1978) has been hailed as an undisciplined innovator in the tango genre, a world music icon and a major reformist in the field of accordion music - she has even been called a musical superhero! Johanna shakes up tango traditions wherever she goes. The newest concert ensemble presented by Johanna is a vividly visualized show titled Imaginary Friends. Besides this she performs with her two colourful fantasy tango ensembles, Johanna Juhola Reaktori and the Johanna Juhola Trio. Her highly original output and collaborative work with top names from the classical, jazz and even electronic music scene has sealed her reputation as a groundbreaking and genre-transcending visionary.
Tens of millions of TV viewers saw Johanna Juhola play the song "Fantasiatango" as an opener for the Eurovision song contest in 2007 in Helsinki. This composition gave it’s name for Johanna's second solo album released in February 2010, describing the style of the music very well. Her other albums are Miette (2006), Tango Roto Live (2010), Fantasiatango 2 (2012) and Diivan jäljet - Shadow of a Diva (2017).
Johanna has performed in 30 countries, also at Womex at 2009 in the opening ceremony and 2011 a showcase with Johanna Juhola Reaktori.
This year Johanna was nominater as ”Artist of the year” in Ethnogala, the Finnish Folk Music Awards and next year she is nominated in ”International act of the year” category.
