"My playing is always an improvisation influenced with different cultures and music styles. My violin playing is influenced by arabic, Indian and klezmer styles; Finnish, ingrian and also resonating tones of Indian music inspire my kantele playing. In my piano music, classical influences meet celtic music. I don't compose in the western sense, my music is born when I'm playing it."

Past performances: Hansapiha (medieval culture happening, Jyväskylä, 2013), Kantele competition 2013 in Tampere, Folklandia 2013, Musiikkia ja runoutta yhdistävät monitaiteelliset esitykset (Suolahtisali, Jyväskylä Kirjailijatalo) Jyväskylän Häämessut 2014.
