APRIL JAZZ CLUB: Riikka Keränen September 15th, 2023
Jazz singer-composer Riikka Keränen‘s music combines elements of post-bop jazz with the tones and sensibility of a more pop-oriented approach.
With his quartet founded in 2019, Keränen performs atmospheric, modern jazz from his acclaimed debut album A Vision of a Garden, which was released by Flame Jazz Records in February 2022.
Stories written in English move from exploring emotions to the rainforests of Cameroon and also back to the time of the pharaohs and Queen Nefertiti.
Keränen’s performance in Kupla is part of the Finnish Jazz Federation’s tour.
