Zen Caf?© is a Finnish rock band that was founded in Turku in 1992. Since the late 1990s, the band has been quite popular in Finland, but it hasn't gained popularity in other countries - then again, there has never been an attempt to export the band outside Finland, most likely simply because all of the group's songs are in Finnish.
The band named itself after the book Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig at the suggestion of band's bassist Kari Nylander. Other original members were Samuli Putro (vocals, guitar), Mikko Oesch (guitar) and Tuomo M?¤kipaavola (drums). Oesch soon left the group and M?¤ki-paavola was replaced by Pete Parkkonen (drums).
