The main event produced annually by the Global Music Centre is the Etnosoi! Festival Etnosoi! was held for the first time in 1988 and is Finland’s premier festival of world music. The festival, which is held in November, is intended to expand the Finnish public’s field of musical experience by including the music of lesser-known artists and music cultures in the programme. The Festival takes place principally in Helsinki, but since 2010, Etnosoi! concerts have also been organized in Tampere.
