Satu is a versatile professional musician and multi-instrumentalist. Her simple way of creating music has its roots in the ages-old Finnish, Ingrian and Karelian traditions yet reaches beyond the established and into new and unexplored dimensions.
Her precise layering of of singing and accordion creates a rich, multi-dimensional soundscape in which the listener can get lost in bell patterns and tone clusters.
Satu earned degrees in music from the Central Ostrobothnia Conservatory of Music in 2008 and in music instruction from Centria in 2014. She currently studies folk music at the Sibelius Academy as part of its master’s program. She has been a freelance musician since 2003.
