The first performers of summer’s 2023 Korpo Sea Jazz announced!


Organized since 1989, the intimate island festival Korpo Sea Jazz will resound again in the archipelago on the 20th-22nd July! The program planning is well underway and the artists of Saturday’s main concert will be announced today. An award-winning jazz singer-composer Nina Mya was invited to be the artistic director of this summer’s festival and she has worked hard all autumn to put together the program. 

The main concert is opened by Varre Vartiainen Almost Standards Acoustic Live, who serve jazz with a rocking attitude. In the band put together by Varre Vartiainen, the biggest names in Finnish jazz play Vartiainen’s compositions, which show the versatile skills of the players and a swinging and energetic mood.

As the second performer of the evening, the festival’s artistic director Nina Mya and her band will enter the stage. We will hear songs from the soul jazz-inspired album “Just Another Lonely Soul”, released in 2021, as well as other compositions in which her technical talent and dark-toned voice shine.

Deviating from many years of tradition, the main concert will be held on the closing day of the festival, July 22 at Archipelago Center Korpoström. After the main concert, jazz lovers have time to enjoy a delicious buffet before the jam session that ends the festival. The buffet dinner is available for those who order in advance.
