Out of stock

Product Description

Arja Kastinen (b.1963) received a PhD in Music in 2000 from the Folk Music Department of the Sibelius Academy. Her subject was Karelian kantele improvisation in the 1800’s and the acoustics of the 15-string kantele. The music on this CD is a direct result of that research work. The music is free associations and improvisations around different subjects and playing techniques like yhdysasentoinen and the old sekatekniikka, as well as newer techniques, such as harmonics and mattaääni (damping).
