Kajto
Kajto is an Esperanto-ensemble who plays and sings songs with original Esperanto lyrics from various countries. They employ a wide range of instruments, among others guitar, cittern, violin, accordion, shawm and flutes. All Kajto's music is composed by the group itself.

The elements from which the world-language Esperanto has been made, mainly come from Roman languages and for the remaining part from Germanic and Slavonic languages. Therefore you can recognize many music-styles in the music of Kajto which reflect the influences from various countries.

Kajto started to perform in January 1988 and since then has frequently toured the continent.
They launched the first ever compact disc in Esperanto, com- prising their own songs.
The first copy to be released in the world was presented to the British young Esperantists and the president of the UEA during the Esperanto world-congress in Brighton in 1989. In October 2004 Kajto recieved the international FAME cultural award of the German town Aalen.

When performing outside The Netherlands, Kajto can make intro- ductions in English, French, German or Esperanto.
The group not only presents its normal repertoire, but when an opportunity presents itself, they also can:

Afterwards the group comes together and one is surprised to hear a beautiful four-part melody. When requested they also play and sing songs of The Nether- lands and Friesland.
