Teija Niku Kvartetti is a group formed specifically for Niku’s second solo album Memento. The quartet’s music marries folk music with jazz influences in an organic manner. The ensemble’s live performances convey the solo album’s mystical harmonies by respecting the original arrangements, but at the same time leaving space for each player’s own interpretations and improvisations.
