Kulo (CD)
Sometime in the early 1980s, a few young amateur musicians based in Turku, Finland, decided to put up a band. Inspired by South-East European and Middle-East folk music styles, the name Balkanin Juhla ('Celebration of Balkan') was settled by the end of the decade. This name was renounced in 1995. And then, Transkaakko was born. During the years, a legion of talented musicians has played in Transkaakko. Three original members, Jaakko Isojunno, Pekka Rappu, and Janne Mäkelä have remained. The music style has changed, too. Balkanese rhythms and Finnish melodies accompany progressive rock, psychedelic folk music and sound experiments. Or was it the other way around? We find playing songs in 7/8 or 9/8 as natural as delivering them in 4/4 rhythms. We respect music traditions but the main thing for us is to seek the spirit of excitement and originality. In the end, our aim is to keep up the fire of true alternative music!
