Based on traditional Finnish midsummer night's ritual. Made during second session of Kino Euphoria Midnight Sun 2013, in Sodankylä Midnight Sun Film Festival. The only instrument used in the soundtrack is kantele (11+4 strings, specially tuned). Kantele is the national instrument of Finland, also mentioned in Kalevala as being the instrument played by the great shaman Väinämöinen. Only tiny bit of colour correction was done in edit, we had sunglasses taped on the camera lenses when filming...
