THE FIVE CORNERS

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - ACTIVE -

Fin­land has a vi­brant jazz scene, at the heart of which lies the Five Corners, or Vi­iskulma in Fin­nish. An iconic in­ter­sec­tion of five streets with a stat­uesque build­ing on each cor­ner, it is the heart of Helsinki’s vinyl cul­ture and home to sev­eral record stores, the most fa­mous of which is Digelius Mu­sic. You’ll find all gen­res here, but no­tably jazz. The in­ter­sec­tion is so imbed­ded in the jazz psy­che that The Five Corners Quin­tet was named af­ter it.
