Marja Ahti (f. Johansson) is a Swedish-Finnish musician and composer based in Turku, Finland. Her main creative output is the solo moniker Tsembla.

Using electronics, modified samples of acoustic instrument,
non-instruments and environmental sounds, she makes music that rides on waves of warped melodies, abstract voices and mutating textures – rough edged compositions, rich in detail,
that come together into instrumental miniatures. She also composes music for dance performances and film.
