Welcome to Ethno Music Festival Sommelo’s concert at Kuhmo Winter: Sung Kalevala!

Kaesan Cafe, Kainuuntie 87

20.2.2024 18:30-20:00

The members of Iki-Turso Sound Theatre are singing and making their audience sing.

In 2023, pihla folk started publishing an audiobook of the Karelian-Finnish Kalevala sung. The audiobook is freely available on the internet. The second form of the sung Kalevala project is the performances which interact with the audience where you can join in with a surge of a song and a stir of the stories by singing or listening.

Bring your own Kalevala with you!

Tickets: 10€ sold from Cafe

Drinks and snacks can be bought from the cafe during the evening.
