Welcome to a fascinating world of atmospheres created with kantele.

Iida-Maria Kuronen (1999) is a Finnish kantele musician who is finalizing her master studies in the Helsinki University of the Arts Sibelius Academy.
Her touch to kantele has been described as a listening, gentle but angular. In her concert called Atmospheres the music varies from mystic moods to the world of different echoes and powerful sounds.
