I arrived in Finland this morning. I haven't slept in 32 hours now, it's 10pm and I'm wide awake... Jetlag issues... Anyhow, we were just hanging out and singing with my sister Kaisu. She's a self-taught jouhikko player and she made the kantele below at the Rainbow Gathering this summer. (Jouhikko and kantele are both ancient Finnish string instruments.) She just took a piece of wood and carved that beautiful, functioning piece of art out of it.
Also she painted the painting on the wall. She's pretty handy wouldn't you say? Enjoy the video, we had a lot of fun chanting, I just recorded a part of it.
