Antti Paalanen Short Info

Crazy accordion experimentalist Antti Paalanen returns with his third album, MELUTA, released by Rockadillo Records 2014. On Meluta, the virtuoso accordionist behaves like an angry bull; Paalanen screams at his accordion, kicks the floor and hits the bellows.

Antti Paalanen has created his own sound with his diatonic accordion, and he's given it a new name - BREATHBOX - which was also the title of his last solo album, produced by Kimmo Pohjonen.

Paalanen has a powerful, open-minded command of his instrument, and his hypnotic and minimalistic tunes tell stories about the world of today. Paalanen graduated as Master of Music from the Sibelius Academy and he is now working on his artistic doctoral studies, composing new music for accordion.

Antti Paalanen had a showcase at WOMEX 11 the world music expo held in Copenhagen Denmark 2011. Over the last few he has been touring throughout Europe with his solo project.
