Kimmo Pohjonen biography
Kimmo Pohjonen is regarded as one of the world's most adventurous accordion players. An accordionist and composer of exceptional ability and imagination, Kimmo?s musical history goes back more than thirty years in rock, folk, avant-garde, improvisation, classical, dance and theatre music projects. His studies in the progressive and innovative Sibelius Academy Folk Music Department were a critical factor in Pohjonen's transition to the boldly creative and versatile musician / performer he is today.

In 1996 he embarked on a solo career with his solo 5-row accordion project, featuring extreme and original compositions, live loops and effects, a dynamic and animated stage performance, orchestrated lights and surround sound. This show received instant massive worldwide critical acclaim at WOMEX Berlin in 1999 and has since been performed all over Europe, North and South America, Israel and Russia to unanimous critical raves.

Pohjonen works numerous projects including Kluster with accordion sampling maestro Samuli Kosminen, the KTU group with Kosminen, Pat Mastelotto and Trey Gunn, KTU trio with Gunn and Mastelotto, the Uniko project with Kluster and Kronos Quartet, Animator with computer graphic artist Marita Liulia, the improvisation duo with French drummer Eric Echampard and the Kluster and Proton String Quartet group. Pohjonen has also worked with many dancers, choreographers and theatre performances. Pohjonen and Kosminen composed and performed new music for the Finnish feature film, Jade Warrior, released in 2007.

Kimmo's music is unbelievable explosive mix of Nordic folk, jazz improves, rock energy and RIO aesthetics. His every project has different sound and mixes different components, but only thing is always guaranteed - I will hear possibly world's best accordion warrior ever!
