Josefiina Vannesluoma is a contemporary vocalist and flutist living in Helsinki, Finland. She leads and composes for Signe, Mortal Lease and Nossa Bossa as well as for various other projects. The avant-jazz vocal ensemble Signe’s debut album was nominated for 2020 Jazz-Emma as well as 2020 Teosto Prize.


Born in Turku, Vannesluoma began her musical studies with classical flute and choirs. At age fourteen she found a Brazilian compilation album that immersed her to bossa nova and mimicing tropical rhythms. From there it didn't take her long to find interesting jazz records that engaged her with jazz standard and bebop repertoires and more experimental musics. Today she works increasingly in between different genres, exploring through improvisation.

Vannesluoma has pursued a Master’s Degree on Jazz Performance (2019) and Bachelor's degrees both in Jazz Performance (2016)  as well as in Music Education (2013) at the University of Arts in Helsinki. Between 2016 and 2017 she stayed in the US making music and studying at the University of Miami. The spring 2019 she studied at the Academy of Music and Drama in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Vannesluoma is a dedicated pedagogue and a founder of

Jazz Voice School Helsinki (Jan 2020) with her Signe colleague Riikka Keränen. She also teaches as a permanent pop&jazz voice teacher at Turku Conservatory.
