Artist Biography by

Alakotila Timo is a Finnish musician. He is incredibly active, working with four musical groups at the same time, and collaborating with several other musicians. His full-time musical projects are JPP, Troka, Aldargaz, and Luna Nova. Looking at a chronological take of the discographies of those groups truly shows just how little time Timo must have. He first recorded with JPP in 1986, releasing Laitisen Mankeliska. Two years later they followed that one up with a self-titled album. In 1990 that group released I've Found a New Tango. Following the every-two-years pattern, they next released Pirun Polska. It wasn't until 1994 that Timo started doing double duty with both Kaustinen Rhapsody being released by JPP and also Troka's self-titled debut. The following year, Iho, the first album by Aldargaz, was released. In 1998 JPP's next release, String Tease, came out. 1999 saw two albums featuring Timo released, Troka's Smash and Adargaz's Ahma.
