Biography

 "The Arctic" is a four-piece series about the variable life of the arctic area composed by Berghäll.

The trio released their debut album “The Arctic” in June 2018. The ensemble combines freely flowing but strongly melodic improvisation to winding compositions drawing from chamber music. The nature is often present in Berghäll’s music and trough the peculiar and deeply moving stories, The Arctic series brings light to the many faces of North. 

Joakim Berghäll - baritone sax, bass clarinet 
Kalle Kalima - electric guitar, guitar bass
Kari Ikonen - piano, prepared piano, Moog
