The Kantele is a traditional plucked string instrument from Finland, belonging to the family of the zithers or lap harps. In Finland's national epic, Kalevala, the shaman Väinämöinen builded the first kantele from the jawbone of a giant pike using long hair that young Finnish women willingly gave to him as strings. The sound of that Kantele was so beautiful that all living things started to cry at its very first notes. Their tears rolled into the ocean and turned into beautiful blue pearls as soon as they touched the sea. Maybe that’s just an ancient story but this unique sounding instrument is truly enchanting. We deep-sampled a beautiful sounding 11-string kantele, playing it both with fingers and with pick and packaged it in our usual 3 Double Espresso blends: lots of playable articulations, textures and FXs.
