This trio is a konspirazy of world and jazz music. It combines finnish and jazz traditions with rock and even flamenco. Karo Sampela (Spain) brings the Andaluzian groove, Hannu Rantanen (Fin) colors it with the bass-line based on jazz and finnish folklore and Joonas Widenius (Fin) offers the guitar lines and new compositions you haven’t heard before. Their music is like an Arktik Traktor with no borders! Let’s call it European music with an attitude and slogan “There should be no borders or limits nowhere!” Just keep traktor rollin’.
