Kimmo PÖRSTI (b. 1963) is a Finnish prog musician, mainly drummer, whose bands include MIST SEASON, PAIDARION and THE SAMURAI OF PROG. In the spring of 2020 he released a solo effort Wayfarer which contains some symphonic prog tendencies and features an international cast in the style of The Samurai Of Prog. He has also been active in the Finnish prog society Colossus and is featured, both as a musician and as a producer, on many of its multi-national releases. One can say that Pörsti’s first solo album was Ihmeellinen iltapäivä (1997) which was released under the moniker of MAAHINEN (= Hobgoblin). That album varies between jazzy instrumentals and vocal-oriented songs. Like Wayfarer, it contains compositions from both Pörsti and several collaborators.
