Preview Elixir by Quartet Ajaton

Mia Simanainen, vocals

Henrik Sandås, bandoneon

AJATON QUARTET - ELIXIR
Singer Mia Simanainen leads this unconventional group of top musicians into a fusion of baroque sounds and etherical jazz. Award winning keyboardist Kari Ikonen (making international headway with his own Kari Ikonen Trio) provides the space sounds with his moog while Mikko Perkola's viola da gamba counterpoints the music into the baroque era. The future meets the past.

The new album Elixir is only availble on Vinyl LP and download. (All vinyl discs include a download code.)
