"Raï music is a North African music genre. It was born in Algeria at the beginning of the 20th century and it has spread internationally and especially to France through the Algerian diaspora. In darija, the North African language, raï means opinion, point of view, freedom of choice... In raï songs, themes are (lost) (big) love, immigration, emigration, home sickness etc."

Free entry, but the Café is small, so come early to get a seat! Concert will start at 8pm. In Vantaa, ~20min by train from Helsinki, next to train station, I will post further instructions still.
