Two Welshmen (Fowler and Stevens) and one Fin (Väänänen) discovered common elements in the traditional music of their cultures. Their project is called “Taith” (Welsh for “journey”). This instrumental combination of the Finnish kantele and the Welsh crwth seems to have made a lasting impression on BBC’s Radio 3!
