Deimel Guitarworks – Kalle Kalima

Sunday 11:00-11:20 in Hall C4

Kalle_KalimaKalle Kalima (b. 1973 in Helsinki, Finland) began his journey into sound with piano lessons at the age of six. Five years later he switched over to the guitar and has never looked back. He studied at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki and at the Hanns Eisler Conservatory in Berlin under the guidance of Raoul Björkenheim and John Schröder, to name a few. After taking up residence in Berlin, Kalima has experienced a revelation in his attitude towards free music.


So far Kalle has worked with trumpeter Tomasz Stanko, sax player Juhani Aaltonen, pianist Heikki Sarmanto, bass players Sirone, Teppo Hauta-Aho, Carlos Bica & Ed Schuller, guitarist Marc Ducret, composer Simon Stockhausen, drummer Tony Allen and singer Linda Sharrock. He is also playing with Jimi Tenor, Finnish underground pop star. The last few years have been busy years for Kalima, touring mostly in Europe but also in Africa, Asia and USA.
