Blues guitarist Heikki Silvennoinen and pop kantele diva Ida Elina perform together at G Livelab in October!
With her revolutionary example Ida Elina has shown what the Finnish national instrument, the kantele can be in the present day. She is an outstanding singer and pop kantele diva, as well as a YouTube phenomenon, thanks to her covers of hits by for example Michael Jackson, Adele and Toto, which have reached hundreds of thousands of views and received praises from all over the world. She also has a strong own voice as a songwriter and in her own songs you can hear gospel influences side by side with pop. Trained as a classical musician, Ida Elina invented her unique way of playing her instrument by watching YouTube slap-guitar players.
Ida Elina and Heikki Silvennoinen take the stage together with Anssi Nykänen (drums) and Harri Rantanen (drums).
