When Jimi Tenor and UMO collaborate, usually something epic happens.

Terra Exotica is a completely new work composed by Jimi Tenor, inspired by nearby forests and the seashore, Japanese film-era film music, and bands like Sun Ran and Salah Ragab.

– Terra Exotica is quite an exotic entity, which I have composed specifically for UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra. In addition to the influences brought by Sun Ran and Salah Ragab, the pieces also have a touch of blues and even swing. Our album comes out in the end of the year 2021, Jimi Tenor promises.

The concert is conducted by Ed Partyka.

Duration 80 minutes, no intermission.

Jimi Tenor is a Finnish composer and multi-instrumentalist – and a guarantee of original art, whether it is electronic music created as a solo project or a jazz function made with a band. He sings, plays saxophones, flutes, keyboards and self-built instruments. In addition to his music career, an internationally successful multitalent has e.g. photographed, directed short films and designed clothes. www.jimitenor.com
