Kokko Quartet is a Helsinki-based jazz ensemble, established in 2010. From the very beginning, it was clear that it would be impossible to categorise the ensemble’s music which floats freely above any musical genre boundaries.

Kokko Quartet is a Helsinki-based jazz ensemble, established in 2010. From the very beginning, it was clear that it would be impossible to categorise the ensemble’s music which floats freely above any musical genre boundaries.

The ensemble’s music carries multiple references to Nordic lyricism, and its melodies display both an airy quality and a distinct depth. In addition, inspiration and flavours from Indian and Arabic musical cultures can be heard, along with Cuban rhythms.
