Sakari Kukko - Kaiken maailman pelimaani

Multi-instrumentalistin tie Piirpaukkeen kansainvälisiltä kiertueilta vierailijaksi Kingston Wallin ja Amorphiksen levyille on ollut vaiheikas. Kukko on urallaan soittanut lukemattomissa kokoonpanoissa genrerajoja kumartamatta. Syksyllä 2017 Piirpauke julkaisee uuden levyn ja keikkailee ahkerasti. Kukon vuoteen mahtuu myös mm. kiertue jousikvartetin ja afrikkalaisten muusikoiden kanssa.
