Rakka is a new improvising instrumental quintet from Finland. The first album of the band, Soutu (means rowing) by Lumpeela Julkaisut was released in Finland, UK, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

Even though this particular band is rather new, the musicians have been playing together in several renowned combinations since the early 1990’s.

Three band members Vuorinen, Orpana and Rauhala compose the music, which is a unique combination of musical influences from Finnish folk music, old dancehall music, blues, gospel and jazz. It is rhythmic, melodic and includes a lot of improvisation.
