Please don’t hesitate to join us at!

Dear friend of Arkadia,

You are invited to a concert by Tölöläb on Thursday 12.3 at 6pm at Arkadia (Nervanderinkatu 11)

Tölöläb is an improvisation group which seeks to combine woodwinds and improvised live electronics to make new music.


Warm regards,


– A donation of €3 (or more!) to fund the bookshop is suggested and would be most welcome. Arkadia wouldn’t exist without this act of generosity. If you have no loose change or coins we gladly accept payment via Visa Electron or Mastercard etc. !


The members, Turkka Inkilä, flute, Saku Mattila, oboe, Antti Salovaara, bassoon and Taavi Oramo, live electronics, are all classical musicians with a strong background in improvisation. What makes Tölöläb unique is their approach to electronics, which they use to sample, mangle, de- and reconstruct what is played live. Tölöläb doesn’t use pre-recorded material in their concerts.

Genre is not a binding issue for Tölöläb. Sibelius could get funky or you could get IRCAM-influenced hiphop.
