Bahamas, Afie Jurvanen, performing concert in Vancouver

Time Traveling at Concerts

Let’s talk about Bahamas. Not the escape to a warm tropical island, but rather the serene musical creations of Afie Jurvanen. If you don’t know who I’m talking about, do your ears a favour and look him up immediately.

I discovered him after the release of his second album, Barchords, in which my heart was instantaneously stolen.
