Kantele Fusion MusicLab moved to Pitkyaranta
On April 1,2021 the Kantele Fusion MusicLab was held in Ptkyaranta. This time the Kantele-GO! artists worked with music students of the Pitkyaranta children' music school who got to know more about possibility to use kantele in different music genres and styles. Participants of the creative workshop played traditional 5-string kantele and chromatic 39 - string kantele trying to make a story sound and listened to kantele composistions by Karelian and Finnish authors.
