Biography

Lepistö & Lehti is a critically acclaimed duo of Finnish master musicians Markku Lepistö (accordion) and Pekka Lehti (bass). As a result of creative conversations while seated next to each other on Värttina tours, the duo decided to embark on a new musical mission together.

Both well-respected Finnish music virtuosos in their own right, Lepistö & Lehti play original material from their respective projects, approaching the material from a new angle. The duo operates at the forefront of contemporary Nordic world music, but at the same time, their sound could be described as having a distinct chamber music influence.

On stage, Lepistö & Lehti share a vision of contemporary minimalism. There is space within this music, and the two musicians each have a different musical history to tap into. This translates into a highly personal sound with remarkable confidence and vision.

In October 2008 Lepistö & Lehti’s debut album Helsinki was shortlisted for the prestigious Teosto award in Finland. The prize is granted annually for an outstanding musical achievement.
