The notion that the piano accordion could be regarded as an instrument capable of beautiful music may come as a surprise to some, but just listen to Kimmo Pohjonen. Whether playing alone or accompanied by other musicians, bellows, farmyard animals and machines, this Finnish maestro enthralls listeners with his strongly Scandinavian take on multiple musical genres. His approach to music, his instrument and life (see him drop out of sight down a hole in deep ice) provides an extraordinary document of a singular man.
