Maini Sorri

I willingly admit that I haven’t been a big consumer of music in languages that I don’t know. And for you to understand why, I must say that the lyrics are really important to me as a listener. Just as important as the feeling of the song.
My experience of music sung in Finnish has been at a level of zero. Or at least very close to it – I may have overheard one or a couple of the Finnish contributions to the Eurovision Song Contest. Until now.
Beacuse after Maini Sorri’s great success with her “Lähden Yksin”, which was releaesed on the compilation “Allt ljus på oss” (All lights on us), I must say that I am amazed and astonished. Never had I thought that I’d be humming along on a Finnish song – which is exactly what I am doing on a more or less daily basis now. And I’m also happy to expand my own Finnish vocabulary.

Apart from that, Maini Sorri is also an inspiration as a marketer. Maini does not bashfully ask permission. Maini kicks the door open, and armed with her stubbornness she has now succeeded in creating personal contacts with several musical editors at both Nordic and European radio stations. She is also played in Canadian radio as well as on TV6 in the US. Maini does not only inspire as the fantastic female musician she is – but also with her great personality, stubbornness and strength.
