Calm thee, blood
“Calm thee, blood, and cease thy flowing; calm thee, blood, and cease thy spilling. Thou art not a flood for flowing, nor shalt sink a boat by spilling.”
Overwhelming feelings inside me. Inadequacy, inspiration, creation through sorrow, talent. What are they?
Calm thee, blood is a study of artistry and creating art. This concert invites the audience to enter the thoughts of the performer through an array of elements including various kanteles from the tiny 5-string to the three-metre bass kantele, the singer’s voice, guest performers and pre-recorded speech.
Jenni Venäläinen, kantele, voice, composer
Minttu Hellstén, voice
