Raoul Björkenheim Triad – Jazz-Espa

Eteläesplanadi 1, 00130 Helsinki
Espa Stage

Raoul Björkenheim Triad first stepped into the limelight in 2013. Straight away, the ensemble began to explore a more expressionistic direction for their music, with the raw energy of free jazz and rock weaving together with the brutally beautiful Nordic lyricism.

Their compositions provide only a loose framework for the music, letting improvisations take centre stage, with spontaneity as the driving force. An attentive listener may recognise echoes from Coltrane, Ayler and Hendrix.
