Anna-Maria Toivonen: Runolaulu

Anna-Maria Toivonen will give a workshop about rune singing, the traditional way to sing ancient Finnish poetry. She writes: ” I’m a music therapist, music pedagogue and musician and my major is in folk singing. I love to sing and tell long stories, and especially rune singing is my absolute favorite. At the Nordic Harp Meeting I’m going to teach some basics about Finnish traditional rune singing: poems, meter, tunes, and so on. We well learn by singing but we will surely have a possibility to add some instruments with our singing too!”Anna-Maria ToivonenAnna-Maria Toivonen with jouhikko
