AMULET / A Musical Ethnicality

"If you imagine that all the things i have learnt and experienced are like nuggets of gold in a stream, then this disc is a gold pan vigrorously shaken roun and round, a search for those nuggets: projects and line-ups, friends with whom making music has been especially bright. Each in turn surfaces and engages in dialogue with my accordion. The result is music such as you may not hear anywhere else. Nothing I have learnt is just its own self: not folk, tango, world, classical, traditional or rock. All are filtered through one another and answer two questions: what has music made of me and what have I made of music?

Family and roots were one starting point. My great grandfather was a conductor and professional musician back in the 19th century. His son, another conductor by the name of Martti Parantainen, found a piece for me to arrange. Merja Ikkela, my sister and my teacher for many years, composed Mal de Mer for this disc. The rest I found among the treasures of Finnish folk music and the works of familiar composers. Having assembled my repertoire, I noticed to my surprise that the name of a bird features in many of the works of composers. I hope that all those gallant birds will lend wings to my music. Finnish from the home-nest perspective but the music of the whole world froma bird's-eye view.

One of the leading and most versatile Finnish accordionists, Petri Ikkela (b. 1965) is the only Finnish artist to play not only 1, 2, 3 and 5-row instruments but also the free-bass accordion, concertina, symphonium, accordina and bandoneon. He studied in both the solo performance and the folk music departments at the Sibelius Academy, obtaining a Master's degree in 1998. He won the under-16 prize (exaequo) in the national Accordion Competition at the Youth Arts Event in 1981 and the prize for 1- and 2 row accordions in Finnish Folk Music Championships in 1984.

Petri Ikkela is nowadays a freelance musician, music teacher, arranger, composer and conductor of a variety of light, classical and folk ensembles. His pioneering work in Finland on the Argentinean tango and the new Finnish tango drawing influences from this has been highly significant. He has thus introduced new international strains into Finnish music and combining them with tradition, created interesting dimensions for the pleasure of all who enjoy the company of music and whom he has, as a member of or soloist with different ensembles, entertained not only in Finland but also in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, France, Spain, Austria, Italy, Hungary, Croatia, Egypt, Malaysia, North Korea and the USA.
