Kantele-GO! at Sommelo
On July 3 and July 4, 2021 the Kantele-GO! project arranged kantele performances by Hanna Ryynänen from Finland and Eva Väljaots from Estonia at the Sommelo Festival in Finland. Kantele players announced the live stream concert by the Kantele Ensemble and also gave their own concert on the next day.
Hanna Ryynänen who has been the Kantele-GO! expert from the beginning of the project, shared her emotions after the live stream concert: "Thank you for a lovely concert today! I enjoyed seeing all the musicians on the stage and listening to your new program. I started missing all of you during the concert, hope to see you soon again!"
