“This is the 13th festival we’ve organised, and renowned international artists attend each year,” says Tomi Tolvanen, founder and director of the event. This year’s star performers include Yamandu Costa, the renowned Brazilian guitarist, as well as Sinfonity – Electric Guitar Symphony Orchestra. “Yamandu Costa is one of the world’s leading musicians specialising in Brazilian ‘choro’ music, and he is attending our festival for a second time. Sinfonity, the Spanish electric guitar orchestra, consists of ten guitar virtuosos who play everything from Bach and Holst to Vivaldi in a spectacular performance. Although the festival focuses mostly on acoustic guitar music, we have diversified in recent years to offer a variety of amazing music performances,” Tolvanen explains.
