Ethno Finland is financially supported by Kansalaisfoorumi. Ethno Finland is part of the Ethno program of Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI), the world’s largest network for youth and music. All Ethnos:



In Ethno camps, participants teach traditional and folk music of their cultures to each other. The idea of Ethno is to increase understanding and respect towards other people and cultures, as well as to give chance for young musicians to develop musically and create networks over borders. The first Ethno music camp was organized in Sweden in 1989. Since then Ethno has grown worldwide including now over 20 countries.

Kaustinen Folk Music Festival is the largest folk music festival of the Nordic Countries. Known for its unique atmosphere where both amateurs and professional artists mix freely, the festival is a rare blend of hundreds of inspired concerts, both domestic and international, workshops, improvised jam sessions and dance performances each summer.
