Adele Sauros - tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, flute and vocals
Mikael Saastamoinen - electric bass, effects
Erik Fräki - drums, percussions

Katu Kaiku’s music consists of haunting melodies, organic odd meters and superb touch of dynamics played by Adele Sauros on tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, flute and vocals, Mikael Saastamoinen on electric bass and Erik Fräki on drums. Progressive structures meet lush and lilting, yet growing melodies. Harp-like arpeggios played on the electric bass groove and communicate with elaborate drums.

Musical roots of these young well-established jazz artists grow from jazz, pop and free improvisation. Trust, friendship and liberal attitude towards all kinds of musical ideas creates a space for trio’s distinct sound.

Katu Kaiku’s debut album 'Tokyo/Kuopio' came out in 2016 and received excited feedback from audience and critics. Trio's second album will be released internationally in early 2019.

The trio has toured in Spain, Norway, Netherlands and in Finland in several occasions. They have made a few collaborations with Finnish jazz greats such as Verneri Pohjola, Teemu Viinikainen and Seppo Kantonen.
