Kimmo Pohjonen is not only an accordionist but also a fan of tailormade bikes.  (Helsinki, September 2015)

Now, in January 2016, Kimmo Pohjonen’s latest album “Sensitive Skin” (released last October), featuring “compositions exploring dynamic, new sonic territory” with special guests like Kronos Quartet, is on the top of World Music Chart Europe. The album is available both on CD and vinyl (of course!).
