Kantele is a sampled library of three beautiful Kanteles, including the Concerto Kantele, played by the musician artist Emma Lomy.

Get inspired by the Finnish sound of  nature: “Finnish folk poetry recounts that the first kantele was made from the jaw bones of fish and the hair of young maidens. When the first kantele was played, the sound was so beautiful that all living things started to cry. Their tears rolled into the ocean, and when they touched the sea they turned into beautiful blue pearls.”

Kantele - A Deeply Sampled Library Of Three Beautiful Kanteles.

Kantele is a sampled library of three beautiful Kanteles, including the Concerto Kantele, played by the musician artist Emma Lomy.

It was recorded in a 105mq recording studio in the Sibelius Academy Music Technology department, using only top-end gear

The kantele is the national instrument of Finland, and it belongs to a large family of string instruments called “zithers“. Zithers have a resonating body with a variable number of strings, which can be plucked, strummed, struck, or bowed. In the case of the kantele, the strings are plucked or strummed and the smallest kanteles can be held in the player’s lap. There are kanteles of many sizes: 5-string, 10-string, 11-string, all the way up to the 36-string concert kantele, like the one we recorded.
