Kuru –band is founded in 2003 at Oulu, Finland. Kuru's music is described as modern scandinavic pop-jazz, which has a strong influence of Finnish folk music. The repertoire of the band is fully based on own compositions where you can hear a strong affection of wilderness and find out our roots in the nature of Northern Finland. Strong melodies are essential in Kuru's music and that offers an easy approachment for listeners across the musical categories without compromising the quality. In these functional compositions you can join to the mystic, musical journey from the sea up to the mountains of Finland.
During the years Kuru has reformed and even found new musical approach. Still the common endeavor has been to preserve Kuru’s unique sound and you can still hear echoes of Finnish soul-scape and rough wilderness in Kuru's music.
