KIMMO POHJONEN / SAMULI KOSMINEN and PROTON STRING QUARTET (FI)

Saturday 07.07.12 - 15:30 - Pavilion

Known to many as the Jimi Hendrix of the accordion, Kimmo Pohjonen transforms the mariner’s instrument of choice into an avant-garde contraption from the future.

With an experienced group of strings and sample/percussion magician Samuli Kosminen behind him, the energetic front man creates a cross-dressing total experience that is equal parts modern compositions, manipulated electronics and strange art rock.

Samples, loops and classical strings are elegantly united with Pohjonen’s ecstatic and crude grip on the accordion.

A trippy experience for all musical daredevils who like to travel far from the mainland of music.

Label: Ondine / import
