Olli Soikkeli Trio

Olli Soikkeli is arguably one of the most sought-after gypsy jazz guitarists of the current scene. After moving to New York in 2014, he has been busy wowing audiences at New York’s legendary venues with his virtuosic and energetic performances. In Helsinki he performs with his celebrated trio unit of Grammy-awarded Romanian pianist Marian Petrescu and young award-winning double bassist Kaisa Mäensivu.

”Olli Soikkeli, a riveting Finnish guitarist who combines astonishing dexterity and speed with pure soul in a way that places him among the worthiest current day successors to the legacy of the great Django.”  – The Wall Street Journal
