Covid pass is required in all concerts

In Bach Re:imagined, he combines the traditional cello playing in what is possibly the most hallowed part of the cello repertoire with electric bass, keyboards and electronics to create a modern soundscape. Porra has been performing this programme since 2018, including performances with cellists Jonathan Roozeman and Kati Raitinen at the Baroque on the Edge festival in London and at the Oulu and Korsholma Music Festivals. At Kalevalan Navetta, he is joined by cellist Lauri Kankkunen.
