Composer and Artist Professor Jukka Linkola is one of the most successful musicians in Finland, and now 27 years have passed since the birth of the first album of his notorious band The Tentet, it’s time for a comeback. The renowned band has had several tours around Finland and abroad and has also made it into the highly valued Prix-Italy gala with their show. Our pleasure is to have this legendary band on Porvoo Jazz stage in the 123 Kellari as our festival opening act on friday. The music is a lush mix of rocking jazz with a hint of funk and latin ingredients.

The Finnish Jazz Association has prized Linkola with the prestigious Yrjö Award and his EQ band has also won the Finnish Grammy, Emma Award. Linkola has won many international composer awards such as the city of Le Havre composition competition , Paris Opera Screen and Cannes Midem Awards.
