Yablochkov Candle is a concert and an aerial acrobatic performance put together. Drawing inspiration from the art and performance styles of the 20th century, circus artist Ilona Jäntti and singer-songwriter Aino Venna have created a unique and minimalist cabaret club night. Venna’s music, richly influenced by French chansons and old school rock 'n' roll blends effortlessly with Jäntti’s beautiful aerial choreography.
