Martti Pokela, Eeva-Leena Sariola and Matti Kontio are the foremost players of the Finnish kantele. The instrument can sound like a harp, harpsichord, or a hammered dulcimer. The delicate contemplative pieces, traditional and newly composed, sound both familiar and alien. Played on 5-string, 9-string and 36-string kanteles and the jouhikko (bowed lyre). Info about artists, instruments and each of the pieces.
