The artists behind
Tango Alakulo are:
Jani has already achieved a prodigious reputation being a member the LSO Double Bass section as well as delving deeper into the mysteries of solo double bass, contemporary and chamber music.
When Jani is not spending time with the bass, you might find him experimenting in South London’s Curry Houses with the hope of an extreme dining experience, and he is also English enough to understand what good bitter means every now and then.
My motto? Despite the fact that music has always been my best friend and comfort, I’d say Navigare necesse est, vivere non est necesse.”
“I have been coming to Finland since 1998 and always love being there. The musicians and the country, the language the sense of living tradition seems to be very strong. I find it is a place where magic often seems to happen.
I like the fact that there has been a continuous tradition of tango in Finland, that it’s for young people as well as old. I have enjoyed playing and even sometimes arranging Finnish tunes, including tangos by Toivo Kärki.”
