An Evening with Katri Helena

Event Introduction

Recordings from seven decades, almost two million albums sold and a nearly endless supply of famous songs which have helped Finns to deal with their joys and sorrows. Katri Helena Kalaoja’s (b. 1945) journey from a small village on the eastern border to dance pavilions, concert halls and Finnish hearts has been extraordinary. After sixty years in the music business and the public eye, every Finn has some kind of image of Katri Helena.

An Evening with Katri Helena offers an intimate moment with a singer celebrating her 60th anniversary as an artist. Before her concert full of evergreen hits, Katri Helena takes to the Huvila stage with the writer of her new biography, Elina Hirvonen. In the book, Katri Helena tells her life story from her own perspective, with her voice, unapologetically and without avoiding difficult subjects. What did the singer think when she could not speak her mind? What has been important in life, and who is Katri Helena?
