A String-quartet meets African quartet led by Sakari Kukko, who also wrote the music for the strings. 

Music offers a vide range of styles, although this program is based on Finnish dance-meladies originally played by ‘Ressan Lassi’,a famous fiddle-man in Kainuu-region, where also Kukko comes from, and still spends time as much as possible.
