Kari Ikonen & Louis Sclavis (FIN/FRA)
Kari Ikonen – Moog synthesizer & piano/rhodes
Louis Sclavis – clarinet & bass clarinet
This big small band plays Ikonen’s and Sclavis’ earthy compositions and some freshly arranged traditional music from Sirius and other elliptical galaxies.
The duo is featured on Kari Ikonen’s album IKONOSTASIS, released in April 2017 by German label Ozella.
