This is a story of the instrument kantele, the Finnish student Yrjö von Grönhagen and the Nazi ideologist Himmler. Their encounter in Germany and Himmler’s fascination with the traditional Finnish instrument led to Yrjö’s involvement in research intended to definitively prove the common roots of the Aryans, the Nazi ideology and the Finnish culture of Rune singing to the music of this instrument.
