Dalindèo’s philosophy is to respect the original spirit of jazz music without forgetting to keep the finger tirelessly on the pulse of today’s currents and anticipating those of the future. Put into practice this means danceable rhythms, strong melodies and an emphasis on the craftsmanship of top musicians.
Drawing on the influence of such composer giants as Henry Mancini, Lalo Schifrin and Duke Ellington, leader Valtteri Laurell Pöyhönen and his entourage create music that is ambitious but accessible and often described with such terms as “cinematic” and “visual”. Dalindèo has released three albums which have also received coverage in international music media.
The latest album, Kallio (KHY Suomen Musiikki, 2013), a theme album about the city district in Helsinki, has been praised for its winning eclecticism and successful capturing of the colourful bohemianism associated with the area. The album was also the winner of the Jazz‐Emma 2013 prize.
As a live act Dalindèo has gained a reputation as a tight and energetic performer. The bands interplay is as tight as ever after 150+ gigs in Finland and 12 other European countries since the release of debut album "Open Scenes" in 2007.
