Female choir KYN: Outo kantele album release concert

Helsingin Sanomat wrote about KYN’s previous album: “Jos minä puhuisin sinulle (If I Spoke to You) is an astonishingly stunning album. A real gem of the music year 2016.”

KYN’s next album Outo kantele (Strange kantele) promises to be a gem in the year 2018.

Outo kantele, the ninth record by KYN conducted by Kaija Viitasalo is an homage to the music of Jukka Linkola. The record comprises of two suites composed for KYN by Linkola: Loitsut (Incantations) and Outo kantele.


Loitsut is not a traditional choral piece. It is an oeuvre. A holistic experience. The music in Loitsut is full of joy, playful expression resembling the life itself, as well as simple beauty. The direction by Janne Marja-aho, lights by Mika Venhovaara and live visuals by VJ Hellstone turn Loitsut into a stage performance that combines music, movement, lights and visuals. The suite is colored with a vibraphone played by Panu Savolainen.


Outo kantele has fascinated audiences from France to Taiwan and charmed even a competition jury. In Outo kantele, Linkola has fused the world of folk poetry with a dose of bold cabaret spirit, vibrant, even a bit theatrical expression and a pinch of jazzy groove. The suite is starred by accordionist Johanna Juhola and pianist Kirmo Lintinen.


Warmly welcome!
