Highlight of the party! Ricky-Tick Big Band is an orchestra made up of young jazz musicians nationally and internationally acclaimed for their extensive catalogue of work. When they team up with three pioneers of Finnish rap (who go by the name of Julkinen Sana, ‘Public Word’), it will be a hurricane of jazz, rap, soul, pop, funk and afrobeat!
