Anttu Koistinen

Anttu Koistinen

Style: Pop/Rock (Koistinen Wing15 Kantele)

Anttu Koistinen is a Finnish musician who plays the national instrument of Finland called kantele. He started to play in 2001 with the modernized electric Wing -kanteles developed by Koistinen Kantele, and he quickly found a completely unique way to play and perform with the instrument. Kanteles have been traditionally used for folk and classical music but Anttu's experimentation with his instrument’s different sound possibilities and the development of new kind of playing techniques for kantele has shown that it is possible to use the instrument for e.g. pop, rock or jazz.
