For 22 years, Jazz Finland has been producing the Jazz Espa concert series focusing on Finnish jazz music at the turn of July and August. The high-quality free event is organised in collaboration with Savoy Theatre, which manages the Espa outdoor stage.
Etno-Espa focuses on new Finnish folk music. The concerts are held on weekday afternoons. The purpose of the event is to showcase urbanised music that has fusion elements but draws from Finnish tradition.
