Kalevalatalo carefully protects the tradition of playing the kantele. At musical events, you can hear children playing the five-stringed kantele or listen to a orchestra of kantele players who are famous in this region. Soon, the Kalevala Museum will host an exhibition dedicated to the kantele of Ontrei Malinen, an instrument that dates back to 1833. Elias Lönnrot himself listened to the sound of this kantele.
