The Finnish connectionů.

Mesmerising. That's what the strains of the music of the national instrument of Finland, kantele and the Indian sarangi which could be heard from quite a distance away, could be called. And the effect on those who gathered on the lawns of the embassy of Finland on that warm Sunday afternoon was magical.

Minna Raskinen on the kantele and Kamal Sabri on the sarangi were accompanied by Shafaat Ahmed Khan on the tabla, Jukku Tolonen on the guitar, and Markku Ounaskari on the drums. Together they played to be part of the 85th Independence Day celebrations of Finland. Guests, who attended their concert Striking Notes, presented by the Embassy of Finland and the ICCR, spoke of the success of the concert held earlier.
