Kuhmo Winter: Ethno Music Festival Sommelo

The Karelian-Finnish Kalevala will be sung at the Ethno Music Festival Sommelo’s concert. The members of Iki-Turso Sound Theatre are singing and making their audience sing. Drinks and snacks can be bought from the cafe during the evening.

In 2023 pihla folk started publishing an audiobook of the 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!
