Kvalda, a jazz ensemble formed in 2002, combines lucid Scandinavian jazz and free expression into a fresh and modern blend of music. It is characteristic of the quartet to diffuse the boundaries of improvisation and composition.
Kvalda has released three albums: Blindfold (2011), Leia (2007) and Kvalda (2004). Kvalda won the inter-Nordic competition “Young Nordic Jazz Comets” in 2004. After that the quartet has been performing widely both in Europe and in its home country, Finland.
