Laura Annika Quartet combines some modern jazz harmony and improvised vocal music with and without lyrics. LAQ has played together few years and it’s musicians are working widely at Helsinki music scene and getting inspiration both of jazz tradition, scandinavian jazz and contemporary improvised music.
LAQ’s music is composed by vocalist Annika Mustonen and pianist Aleksis Liukko and songs lead the audience through peaceful melodies in the middle of the rhythm storm. Music is based on a modern jazz aesthetic, but there is also influences of blues, singer-songwriter music and latin music.
