Anttu Koistinen in Zoom

In November 2021 master classes by Anttu Koistinen (Finland) for the participants of the Kantele-GO! project took place in Zoom.

During the two-day master class Anttu Koistinen presented the different possibilities of Wing15 Electric Kantele produced by Koistinen Kantele Oy and the Ensemble "Kantele" artists learned an electric kantele parforming technique that they didn't apply before in their practice. 

An electric kantele collection at the Ensemble "Kantele"  has been recently renewed by purchasing the Wing11 Electic Kantele within the Kantele-GO! project. Thus, the necessity to develop the perfoming technique arose. Newly presented performing techniques may be also used while playing the chromatic kantele - the main instrument of the Ensemble "Kantele" players. 

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.
