This is a challenge from North Karelia, Finland, to the rest of the world
You might not intuitively link communal singing and music playing to the stereotypically silent Finland – but actually, in the east of Finland, this tradition is exceptionally strong.
We, the Karelian people, are known for our ability to sing and play music through the good times and especially the miserable ones – thus overcoming whatever hardships the world has posed to us.
That is the Finnish SISU in the form of music. Do you have it as well?
At the moment, the world needs everyone to sing and play music together. Take up the challenge – let’s play together!
North Karelia is the easternmost region of Finland and of Continental Europe. It is a place where east and west meet and where a special state of mind, ”world karelianism” prevails. It means that we want to foster friendliness, openness and hospitality in the good times, but even more in the bad. Our goal is that no one is left alone – in North Karelia or after this campaign in the whole world.
