Live Concerts

The Jussi Reijonen Quintet

Event Date: 
Friday, January 25, 2013 - 9:00pm

Utar Artun – piano
Bruno Råberg – acoustic bass
Tareq Rantisi – percussion
Sergio Martinez – percussion
Jussi Reijonen - fretless and fetted guitars; oud

Composer Jussi Reijonen is truly a product of where he grew up: in five countries across three continents. The multi-instrumentalist plays fretless/fretted guitar and oud (11-string Arabic lute), and his new CD Jussi Reijonen: un is a stunning crystallization of the interplay between Eastern and Western musical traditions.

Bringing together seasoned musicians from Finland, Turkey, Sweden, Palestine and Spain, un pays tribute to the traditions of American and Scandinavian jazz as well as the folk musics of the Middle East and Africa. un will be released on February 26, 2013 in the USA, following a January release in Finland.
