"The Sounds of Finland - Kantele vs Electro folk" @WCF 2019

time 6 Nov (Wed) 8pm (2hr)

location Theatre, Hong Kong City Hall 》5 Edinburgh Place, Central, Hong Kong

fee: $360 / $280 / $200

Finland’s highly popular zither-linked kantele possesses an array of musical possibilities. Folk or classical, jazz or rock, the multi-stringed instrument with its bell-like resonances and a history of more than one thousand years injects zest and crossover potential to all. In this fascinating concert, singer-songwriter Maija Kauhanen showcases traditional kantele folk music with a contemporary twist. Combining a rare plectrum technique with a charismatic voice, extended songs, and imaginative vision, the mesmerising performer, together with electrofolk band Okra Playground, draws on the past to create distinctive soundscapes for today that both challenge and captivate audiences.
