OK:KO Syrtti

OK:KO is a band of a drummer called Okko Saastamoinen, that has already within its short existence has become one of the favourite live bands of the Finnish Jazz scene. This hip young quartet published its debut album “Syrtti” through We Jazz Records at the beginning of this year. It received great reviews, f.ex. Helsingin Sanomat gave it five stars.

In his compositions, Okko leaves a lot of space for improvisation, which gives the band members a chance to truly shine and lead the music to the next level. This dialogue keeps the music fresh and makes it multidimensional and lively moving from delicate moods to the more rugged sounds.

In Porvoo Jazz, we have a unique opportunity to hear a special “Syrtti rewritten” gig, to which Saastamoinen has invited several guests to perform the new arrangements of OK:KOs music.

This is something you haven’t seen before!
