Humour, sharp contrasts, virtuosity, Scandinavian expanses; those are the main elements of the Finnish guitarist Kalle Kalima's music. “The man from Helsinki is one of the best guitar players in Europe.” (Die Welt) He has already won the New German Jazz Award and plays in half the countries in the world. But Kalle Kalima is not just a jazz artist. The gifted improviser has long pushed beyond the limits of his genre, playing street music sounds just as skilfully as he does eastern folklore, swing and minimal or expressionist sounds. At FEATURE RING he will be putting on stage an overview of his works for ensembles.
