ENG logo






























                                                        Kantele player Peter Widenmeyer from Germany has written a great five       string kantele playing guide which can be downloaded for personal use.


                                                                            Visit his website and also his   You tube channel with over 20 kantele songs to learn!


For 10 to 19 string kantele players, we recommend the following book by Arja Kastinen and Pirjo Pirinen: In Visible Vibration - A Guidebook for the 11-string kantele (in English). Instructions for tuning and diverse playing techniques with the help of colour images. contains both traditional tunes from Finland and other European countries for kantele.  



Personalise your kantele with your name or rune designs burnt on to it. Have a look below and feel free to contact us with ideas or requests.
