Ethno Finland

Learning, Performance, Workshop, Event

69600 Kaustinen, Finland

Deadline: 8 Jun 2024


Ethno is a gathering of young musicians from different cultures to teach and share their music with each other. Experienced artistic mentors support and guide the process toward its culmination — usually a series of community and festival concerts, recordings and live streams. At Ethno, everyone — participants, artistic mentors, and organisers — work as a team. During the Ethno gathering, there is time for sharing, connection, learning music and of course plenty of fun! Ethno Finland, organized by Finnish Folk Music Association, is a smaller camp that offers a unique opportunity to truly connect with each and every participant. The camp takes place in the small village of Kaustinen, renowned for its rich heritage in traditional folk music. The traditional fiddle playing style from Kaustinen has earned a spot on UNESCO's List of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Each year, during the second week of July, Kaustinen comes alive with people gathering from all corners of Finland and the world to celebrate the Kaustinen Folk Music Festival. Ethno Finland precedes this festival, taking place in the week leading up to the main event. The camp's main performances will be featured on some of the biggest stages at the Kaustinen Folk Music Festival. Ethno Finland takes place from July 1st to 10th, while the Kaustinen Folk Music Festival extends from July 8th to 14th. We invite you to join us for the entire week of the Kaustinen festival after the camp and participate in the additional Ethno events throughout the festival week. The application fee covers housing, all meals and transportation to and from the concerts. Transportation to and from Kaustinen and meals during the festival week will be at your own expense. After submitting your application you will receive more information about the selection process and schedule. The selection process aims to ensure cultural and musical diversity as well as gender and age equality within the group.
