Enjoy an evening of breathtaking music by Finnish Maija Kauhanen and Faroese Konsørn
A powerfully expressive voice, deep-rooted kantele, and inventive percussion: fleet-fingered virtuoso and one-woman band Maija Kauhanen specializes in Finnish kantele and its old and rare playing techniques. Weaving together polyrhythms and organic beats she creates unique soundscapes and compelling grooves.
Maija Kauhanen is a composer and multi-instrumentalist as well as a charismatic performer with an entrancing stage presence. The rural music traditions of Finland and Karelia are her main inspiration and she deftly gives their time-honoured melodies a new life.
Konsørn is a duo with Mattias Kapnas (piano, synthesizers) and Jan Rúni Poulsen (drums, percussion). Mattias and Jan Rúni have collaborated on numerous projects, but this is a first playing own compositions as a duo. Both classically educated, the music is a sonic journey combining the sounds of percussion, piano, and ambience.
The concert is part of the concert series PULS.
