WMI PLUS At Home
WMI PLUS At Home experiences bring music from around the world into the comfort of your home. Renowned artists share their lives, instruments, and stories from their personal environments, bringing an intimacy and uniqueness to each event. These talks are led by fellow musicians, journalists, and ethnomusicologists.
We are thrilled to provide these events for FREE. If you are able to make a donation of any amount while registering for this event, it will help us to keep the music playing. THANK YOU!

Kardemimmit, is a female quartet who are pioneers in bringing the Finnish national instrument, the kantele, to new audiences around the world. Their music has a strong foundation in Finnish, Eastern European and Scandinavian traditions. They also sing mesmerizing vocal harmonies along with their kanteles, and the silvery tones of the instruments and the vocals blend beautifully.
