A member of two of Finland's best folk bands, Troka and JPP, Matti Makela captures the spirit of the Scandinavian country's traditional music with his highly expressive fiddling. Having studied classical music in Stockholm and the Kokkola Conservatory in Finland, Makela has been performing with bands since he was a member of Kropsu at the age of 14. He continued to sharpen his musical skills as a member of Kappelin Pelimannit, Krannin Laki, and Sikiat. In 1992, he accepted an invitation to join JPP.
