Aino Juutilainen (FI) – cello

Esben Højlund (DK) – piano

Vela is a Danish/Finnish duo consisting of Finnish cellist Aino Juutilainen, and Danish jazz pianist Esben Højlund. Vela’s musical expression is situated in an indefinable place between contemporary classical music and jazz.

Microcosmic and abstract soundscapes blend with crystal clear melodies and complex grooves in this musical, compositional, and improvisatory collaboration.

Both duo members compose and have in this duo found a rare common ground in terms of aesthetics and approach.
