2014 EUROPA - Finland - national musical instruments 5.5.2014

The accordion and kantele can be 'heard' in the May stamps released by Finland.

The 2014 EUROPA stamps released on May 5 represent national musical instruments.  

Sanna Mander, a new name among stamp designers, has illustrated two thoroughly Finnish instruments: the accordion and kantele. Being a fan of folk music, Mander approaches the traditional theme from a modern and personal perspective. The Europa: National Musical Instruments sheet contains ten 1st class stamps.

Thank you Ella.
