RIIKKA-Pure Voice from North!

Riikka Timonen is an outstanding singer from Finland. After performing years with great bands like Varttina and Adiemus ( by Karl Jenkins), she has been concentrating on creating her own music. Her first solo album "Kaenkukuntayot",Cuckoonights, ( Aito Records 2008), presented an intriquing combination of electro-ethnic sounds made by acoustic instruments, programming and the unique voice of Riikka-both sensitive and brutal.
Riikka writes her own lyrics true to traditions and the songs are composed by several Finnish songwriters. "Being true to my own voice is very important to me", Riikka says. "After working as a professional musician so many years, it has been a wonderful journey going back where I came from, finding the girl I used to be and finding my original way of singing. I want to cherish my roots: wide open landscapes of Northen Finland, rivers that make me sing loud and lakes that make me sing silently.

To the upcoming release "Susien Taajuuksilla"( In Tune with The Wolves), Riikka has found fantastic musicians to work with. Senni Eskelinen plays the electric kannel which is now attached in a very jazzy rhythm section, Eero Seppa in contrabass and Pekka Saarikorpi in percussions.
