Come on. The isnt necessary surely

"The" was essential. It is often omitted in modern English but I am an old geezer. I think "Kantele is an instrument" sounds awkward.

"A kantele is an instrument" is all right.

Can this also be translated as "A kantele is an instrument" or does the initial position of that noun require the definite in English?
