biography

Drummer Joonas Riippa (b.1977) is known as an energetic musician who knows both traditional jazz and free improvisation. A good example of the latter is the duo formed with trumpetist Verneri Pohjola, as well as the quartet of Pohjola, that has been extremely successful both in Finland and internationally. In recent years Riippa has also performed with Mikko Innanen Innkvisitio, Innanen's PLOP-trio and the quartet of Markus Holkko. He also plays in the trios of pianist Joonas Haavisto and saxophonist Joonatan Rautio.
