Research interests

My doctoral research "Transnationality, Acculturation, and Representation of Music Tradition: Finnish kantele in Japan" addresses one of the most recent interests in ethnomusicology, namely, the music flow interculturally. This research is based on the ethnomusicological literature on transnationality, domestication, and globalization of musical traditions. It is my hope to open a new and global perspective to Finnish folk music and national instrument, kantele.
