Dear friend of Arkadia,

You are invited to a concert by pianist Nikita Rafaelov on Thursday 20.2 at 6pm at Arkadia (Nervanderinkatu 11)

Nikita Rafaelov is a Helsinki based pianist, composer and improviser. Working in a Finnish jazz, impro and experimental scene, he is a member of a few modern jazz groups, performs as a solo act, and composes music for example for theatre and dance performances.

As a solo artist, Rafaelov has released a debut studio album entitled ‘‘Spirit of Gaia”, out on GOTTA LET IT OUT records. He is a spontaneous and fierce improviser, who’s live shows varies from fully improvised acoustic solo piano concerts, to performing a more structured and composed ideas and pieces using an electronic analog setup.

This evening at Arkadia Bookshop, Rafaelov will perform a fully improvised ambient piano set, drawing inspiration from his long term passion for minimalism and repetitiveness. Concert will also be recorded live.
