When the old Väinämöinen sang the Finnish national epic Kalevala, he played the first Kantele and all of the animals from the woods and all of the people listened with fascination. The sound of this plucked instrument enchants. The first mythological Kantele was made of birch wood the Choroi Kantele however is solid ash wood.
