Live performance by Ida Elina

We are honored to have the famous Finnish singer Ida Elina perform at the gala dinner! Ida Elina is a modern pop-kantele player, singer-songwriter who amazes with her golden voice. She was inspired after seeing virtuoso slap guitar performances on youtube and her unique style is a fusion of modern pop music with classical and ancient folk tunes. Here is a glimpse of two of her musical performances.
