Kuupuu is a solo project of Finnish artist / musician Jonna Karanka. Trained as a visual artist with no studies in music at all she uses sounds for sculpting different layers of reality. She has played in such groups as Avarus, The Anaksimandros, The Way of the Cross, Thriller Bingo, Kukkiva Poliisi and Maniacs Dream, Hertta Lussu Ässä and Olimpia Splendid.


Kuupuu plays partly improvised spooky boogie with tapes, loops, toys, keyboards, effects and voices. Her live sets are time travels through unfound galaxies, deserted huts, nightmares, dirty doghouses, sweet cakes and cranberry lakes - letting the melodies find their own ways and settle or unsettle in the whole.


Karanka has performed music in such places as Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Anthology Film Archives and Issue Project Room in New York, Stockholm's Culture House and the Flow Festival in Helsinki. She has released records from 2003 onwards on such labels as Dekorder, Time-Lag Records and Foxy Digitalis.
