Concert in Pushnoi village

Kantele Fusion MusicLab went all around the Republic of Karelia with concerts and kantele interactive programs for children and adults. It took one month to arrange meetings in Sortavala, Pitkyatranta, villages of Helula and Laskela, Kondopoga, Pryazha and the village of Pushnoi in Belomorsk district.  The Kantele-GO! creative workshops  with participation from the audience were met with great interest and followed with fabulous reviews. The repertoire included kantele compositions by Karelian and Finnish authors that were composed or arranged in the framework of the Kantele-GO! project and those traditionally performed by  the Kantele Ensemble in the previous years. 

Project  partners: The Karelian National Song and Dance Ensemble Kantele (Russia), University of Eastern Finland, Runosong Academy (Finland), National School of Arts named after V. Kalaberda of Pryazha District (Russia).

The Kantele-GO! project is financed by the European Union, the Russian Federation and the Republic of Finland within the framework of the Karelia CBC Programme.
