BBC Radio 3 Freeness: Finnish Blues

Saxophonist Jorma Tapio connects the traditions of shamanic songs and free jazz on his reinterpretation of the traditional songs from East Karelia. Originally a region of Finland, but now part of Russia, the area is famous for being populated by shamans, healers and players of the kantele, a Finnish stringed folk instrument that was a fundamental part of the local music scene for centuries.

Also in the show, the first album recorded by humans and produced by birds. Growing up in a musicians home, the non-human artist tandem that is Kakaduu (two parrots: Säuks and Präuks) became unique experts on music and were offered the opportunity to produce an album by the free improvising trio WIG. Plus, a mesmerising piece by the violin and double bass duo Vilde&Inga. Presented by Corey Mwamba. Produced by Rebecca Gaskell
