Karoliina Kantelinen is a singer and an ethnomusicologist from Helsinki who specializes in different ethnic singing styles. Her doctoral dissertation is on the old yoik tradition from Russian Karelia, formerly a Finnish territory. She currently teaches folk music at the department of musicology in the University of Helsinki and Pop-Jazz Concervatory. From spring 2009 Karoliina has made the artistic doctoral studies at the Department of Folk Music in Sibelius-Academy. Known for challenging the old established ideas and concepts of interpreting Viena Karelian yoiks, Karoliina uses the traditional Kalevala style as her inspiration for new contemporary folk-based compositions. With her distinctive broad-ranged voice, she is also known as a 'lament singer' whose unique ability spans a range of emotion from anguish to compassionate sensitivity.

Besides yoiks, Karoliina composes in her use of traditional Kalevala style stories and melodies. She usually has a clear mental image picture of the sound and works to reach a unified interpretation so that the listener is left with a strong and moving experience of this historic, yet very contemporary, music.
