Eva Väljaots

At Sabatants, Eva will be playing on a big, diatonic Estonian külakannel („village kannel“). Her teacher on this instrument is the legendary grand old man of the Estonian külakannel – Heino Sõna. However, she has also been greatly influenced by finnish and Karelian folk music, as well as Seto and other estonian traditional players’ recordings. At present, she is studying kannel in Sibelius Academy in Helsinki.
