Kadi Quartet (FI)

Kadi Quartet propagates their vision on what a jazz quartet could be like in the 21st century. Rather than solely bathing in the spotlight, in addition to her own adventurous improvisations, Kadi Vija also redefines the role of a jazz singer by creating backgrounds for the other soloists. By combining the catchiness of pop-music, free improvised music and everything in between, Kadi Quartet makes a strong statement of what jazz is today.

In the fall of 2013 the ensemble's career took a leap forward, when contemporary saxophone legend Greg Osby took them under his wing by signing them for his Inner Circle Music record label.

Line-up:
Kadi Vija, vocals
Mikael Myrskog, piano
Pasi Toivanen, bass
Tomi Saikkonen, drums
