Maija Kauhanen

Verstas 5.8. 19:00.

A powerfully expressive voice, deep-rooted kantele and inventive percussion: fleet-fingered virtuoso Maija Kauhanen specializes in Finnish kantele and its rare playing techniques. Weaving together polyrhythms and organic beats, she creates unique soundscapes and compelling grooves. On her second album Menneet (The Past, Nordic Notes 5/2022), Kauhanen takes a step towards being a singer-songwriter without losing her roots in tradition. Maija Kauhanen is one of the most internationally successful folk musicians from Finland and has toured over 30 countries around Europe, Asia and America.
