UTU is a fruitful collaboration of six musicians with quite different backgrounds. In Finnish the name UTU means foggy weather above the sea. This word evokes UTU’s music very well. There are moments of raging seas but also of calm waters. 

UTU has released three albums, that have gotten excellent reviews:
Songs in Flesh Minor (2012)
Pieces of the Unknown (2016)

Russian Poets (2017)

Duo Hurme 

This is a folk duo with the most delicate and minimalist spices. It has got two voices that are weaved to each other as a magical twine. 


This is a trio that will surprise you in every turn! It is making a carnival out of fear of death. It is more than a concert and you might get a chance to listen through it while lying in a coffin.
