Ounaskari / Kuara - June 2011 Tour Dates
(Published: June 06, 2011)

Markku Ounaskari/Samuli Mikkonen/ Per Jørgensen

Markku Ounaskari: percussion
Samuli Mikkonen: piano
Per Jørgensen: trumpet, voice

Finnish percussionist Markku Ounaskari made a strong impression on producer Manfred Eicher during the recording of Sinikka Langeland's Starflowers album (Released 2007) and was invited to present his own project. Kuara, the resulting album is indeed fascinating, with source material including Russian psalms and folk songs from displaced Finnish peoples (Karelians, Udmurtians, Vepsäns) - all approached from improvisational perspectives, and often feeling like a voyage over unfamiliar terrain, or as Markku says, "like a journey through the night". On the album Ounaskari was joined by Samuli Mikkonen and Per Jørgensen and the trio makes its debut US tour later this month.
