Additional Course Information
Kardemimmit are four strong, young women who play a rare
gem: the Finnish national instrument kantele, an ancient stringed instrument
with a silvery sound. While playing 15- and 38-string kanteles, Kardemimmit
sing mesmerizing harmonies in original compositions that blend a modern
approach with a deep foundation in Finnish, Eastern European, and Scandinavian
The band formed in 1999 at the Juvenalia Music Institute in
the members’ home town of Espoo, Finland. In 2004, Kardemimmit were nominated
for Band of the Year by the Kantele Association, and the next year they won the
international kantele competition. The group has released four albums, and
their third album was chosen as the 2012 Album of the Year by the Finnish Folk
Music Association. They have toured extensively in Europe, North America, and
