Joose Keskitalo belongs among the most original and interesting Finnish singer-songwriters. Known for his rough and raw Folk music, Keskitalo released a new album this spring titled Julius Caesarin anatomia (Julius Caesar’s Anatomy) which continued the triumphal sequence of critically acclaimed albums. In his newest newest, Keskitalo reaches to a number of new directions musically, including Jazz. Perhaps the key to his success are his band The Mystic Revelation of Teppo Repo who have introduced new, vibrant colours into his already exciting music. The margins of Finnish pop music are full of compelling and willful artists, including Joose Keskitalo. It is about time that we had him perform at this year’s Pori Jazz.
