  • Taikasiipi


I'm a trumpet player and composer from North Karelia, Finland. 2018 is my first year in Classical:NEXT, and I'm looking forward to get new ideas and inspiration. I have a music and performance project called The Return of Anai-Haak and a Brass Duo Anu & Anja. Taikasiipi is my company. My biggest interest in classical and contemporary art music are brass music, electronics and indie classical.

I graduated from Helsinki University as a musicologist (MA,1990) and from Joensuu Conservatoire as a musician (2017). My career started as the director of Global Music Centre, Helsinki. In the 1990's I was one of the founding members of the European Forum of Worldwide Music Festivals and WOMEX. After that I started the first ever Finnish webstore for breastfeeding mothers. The next period was working as a traffic biogas specialist in North Karelia. Currently I'm working on my own music, trumpet playing and creating a music service for elderly people.
