      Riikka Timonen, a seasoned vocalist with a CV most singers would die  for, steps into the limelight proper with her first solo effort,  "Käenkukuntayöt". Some six years in the making, the record finds  Timonen in full bloom and serves as an example of a well carried out  and natural artistic maturing process.

      "Käenkukuntayöt" includes ten compositions of high standards, and the  stylish album art work embodies its contents fittingly." Veli-Matti Henttonen, Salon Seudun Sanomat

      "The history Finnish world music just became one component richer than  it used to be. ´Käenkukuntayöt´ captures the listener in a delicate  way without boasting its own brilliance too much. Full 10 points." Anna Muurinen, Viisukuppila

      Riikka is a Finnish singer whose angelic voice has been heard before  on the records of such internationally acclaimed groups as Adiemus and  Värttinä. With these groups she has also toured around the world. Now  Riikka has stepped out as a solo singer with her debut album  "Käenkukuntayöt" (Cuckoo Nights) that saw its release in March 2008.  Riikka has been working on her album with a young composer Ville  Laaksonen, known for his works for Nightwish, for example. Together  Ville and Riikka have created a truly unique and beautiful album full  of music that is both fresh and timeless. Riikka´s music will surely  appeal to both fans of Värttinä and Adiemus as well as world music  lovers with its multitracked vocals and Nordic folk music inspired  melodies.
