About Sari - the Doer

I'm Finnish singer, folk musician and artist and living back in my home willage, Rääkkylä. This willage is also home of the best known and most popular Finnish folk music band Värttinä and Folk music festival Kihaus.
My home is situated by the lake Saimaa and surrounded by beautiful pine forest. I've visited my sand beach as a child, and now I'm so happy to live here.
I wanted to open my culture home to all visitors who are interested in Finnish culture, music, Carelian traditions and the history of Värttinä.
My main instrument is Finnish national instrument kantele. The sound of the instrument is unique and the best mindfulness meditation for me is to play kantele - and sitting on a shore, of cuorse.
I love Carelian traditions and art. My mother made me a art trail - and all our visitors are also welcome to see her environmental art.
You are warmly welcome to visit me here in Villa Ruusula!


Everybody can join to our kantele work shop.
