Performing "300 Year Old Rock & Roll from the Cradle of Civilization" TURKU's saz, bass and layered percussion are the raw energy in their music.

“Every festival there is one particular band that creates a LEAF Buzz. It's usually a band that most folks haven't heard of before. Word spreads across the festival that "You gotta go see this band...they were fantastic today and they're playing again. " The festival buzz this weekend was all about TURKU. They were definitely THE BAND to hear.”
