ELive Stream: Söderbacka-Matikainen Duo sings jazz
Martin Söderbacka - guitar, vocals | Eevalotta Matikainen - double bass
Guitarist Martin Söderbacka and bass player Eevalotta Matikainen perform atmospheric and multifaceted music that strongly lives in the moment. The duo composes own music and arranges well known pieces, utilizing effects and the diversity of sounds from their instruments. Strong melodies and fresh arrangements lure listeners to stop and enjoy the music. Tonight’s repertoire consists of original music and jazz classics in both instrumental and vocal versions.
Eevalotta and Martin run a music company called ELive Music in Kokkola and they founded Söderbacka-Matikainen Duo in 2011. Since then they have been performing and touring together with numerous guest artists such as: Joonatan Rautio, Jukka Perko, Teemu Viinikainen, Osmo Ikonen, Jesse Kaikuranta, Manuel Dunkel, Mikko Pettinen, Siim Aimla (EST), David Lyttle (IRL) and Mikko Hassinen. Besides the duo lineup Söderbacka and Matikainen also compose for their quartet SM4 and for Eevalotta’s soul/jazz quintet Soul What? feat. Joonatan Rautio.
