The new album Archipelago Sea Tales, by the internationally acclaimed Jussi Fredriksson Trio, tells barren beautiful stories about the world’s most fantastic archipelago. During the COVID-19 pandemic, pianist Jussi Fredriksson wrote a new repertoire for the trio, where the composer found inspiration from emotional themes like archipelago romance and the natural disaster in the Archipelago Sea. The songs on the upcoming Archipelago Sea Tales album have their origins on Aspö, Nagu, Brännskär, Gullkrona and other fantastic islands in the archipelago. The album tells about the current gloomy state of the Baltic Sea, combined with its beauty and fascinating range of colors.

The concert on the Baltic Sea Day is part of the collaboration between the Archipelago Sea Jazz festival series and the John Nurminen Foundation.

During the event, the public is encouraged to pay attention to safety distances, use facemasks and to take care of good hand and cough hygiene. You should not participate if you feel any flu symptoms!
