Music of the Baltic















Today the Helsinki harbor is frozen over, and here is a photo I took of it just this morning. I heard that the Baltic Sea is frozen across even to Estonia nowadays, which is hard to imagine. Around 100 million people currently live in the Baltic Sea area, which has been an important region of cultural exchange for centuries.


Here are links for more information about the Baltic Sea region:
