About me:
Janne Tuomi was born in 1973 in Tampere, Finland. Coming from a family of musicians and music educators, it was only natural that this first-born began playing the piano at the age of six. But the infatuation was not to last as percussion soon lured him away from the ebonies and ivories.

Tuomi commenced studying at the Conservatory of Tampere in 1995 and further honed his skills at the Carl Nielsen Academy of Music in Odense, Denmark. After undertaking a study trip to New York City, Tuomi graduated from the Conservatory in 2000 with honours. In 2001 he travelled to Los Angeles to take private lessons. In 2006 Tuomi did his diploma recital as part of Tampere Biennale contemporary music festival, again with honours.

During his professional career Tuomi has acted as a free jazz drummer, classical percussonist and everything in between. He has performed with guitarists Antti Kotikoski, Raymond Boni, Sakari Luoma and Marzi Nyman, saxophonists Daunik Lazro, Jone Takamäki and Jorma Tapio, pianists Iro Haarla and Seppo Kantonen, bass players Ulf Krokfors, Sampo Lassila and Claude Tchamitchian and numerous others.

In recent times Tuomi has taken part in productions by the Balanescu Quartet and John Zorn’s ’Finnish Cobra’ . Jazz and classical aside, the percussionist works with groups like Slobo Horo and Suurin Onni that specialize in world music. He is also the percussionist in renowned trance rock group Circle.

Apart from recording and performing various styles of music with a burning passion, Tuomi teaches percussion both privately and at the Palmgren Conservatory in Pori. He is also experienced as a theater musician.

His first, critically acclaimed solo-cd 'Approaching' was released in 2004. The following 'elg' will be released in 2008. Recordings for third one 'Resonance' has already began.

Der er her på OMN oprettet et Nordisk Forum under 'Groups'
Her er intro-teksten:
Med syngende vingefjer og skrigende halse flyver fem svaner (+ Åland, Grønland & Færøerne) på opdagelse i overtoners univers. Sigtet er det samme som det overordnede netværk men sproget skandinavisk og fokus på nordiske temaer og begivenheder.
