This week i have been mostly listening to ........

An ancient Finnish Lullaby  played on the Kantele by Merja Soria.

(Not sure why i like this, perhaps i have some Nordic roots? )

In the mythology of Finland,  the first Kantele was made by Wainamoinen - a primordial god of chants, poetry and song, who helped bring life to the world. When he played the kantele all creatures would come to listen to him.

 (By way of a change, and to complement the folklore posts, i am trying an occasional link to some of the things that have caught my eye on Youtube in the past. Hope they are of interest.)
