Music of Finland
Music is more of a hobby for the Finnish people, than a job. Almost every child learns to play an instrument at some point in their life, and schools even started having classes for it during open hours. Pop music and heavy rock are two of the most commonly played genres of Finland. In fact, most musical groups and bands of Finland happen to be either of metal fate or heavy rock focus.
The Kantele – Finland’s National Instrument: The kantele is the oldest Finnish folk instrument, and is classed as a cordophone, or, an instrument whose sound arises from a string stretched between two fixed points. This is the main instrument of Finland, for traditional folk music, outside of rock and heavy metal, and pop as well.
