KOTI is the Finnish word for home. We all have many homes; a chosen, a hereditary and a communal one.
The four KAMA members are originally from Finland, Israel and Germany, but they all chose the Netherlands as their new home. Ultimately, also the bandmates’ friendship creates a feeling of home, independent of locality.
Through her experiences this far, bandleader Kiki has discovered that home is more like a state of mind, heart and trust, not always a physical place. But whatever home means to a person, it’s many times the starting point for doing life; for every action and thought it’s the start and the goal.
To bring it home.
