    Sinikka Langeland:  April 20th - 26th

    Sinikka Langeland, a graduate of the University of Oslo, has studied piano, guitar and contemporary folksong. Since 1981, she's been especially interested in the kantele, or table harp. We'll hear original compositions from "The half-finished Heaven", her latest ECM release, all this week on BLUE.
