Happy New Year!
Really looking forward to year 2017. Recordings for our forth coming album ‘Valkama’ are basically done. Next step is mixing and drafting out the cover artwork, for which we have an ambitious concept. Let’s see how it plays out.
Here is a first raw mix iphone-snippet from the song ‘Veden elein’, which we are quite pleased with. It only took couple of hours to hatch. Strange.
Current track listing:
Sydämes on tiel
Aina sininen aina
6th October 2016
The main bulk of work is done. We finally cracked the mystery of finding the route in.
Steering now towards our vision. The new thing is emerging. Little shadowy still but shapes and stories are coming to focus…
Vocals are going next under the magnifying glass.
The lyrics need some work as well.
After that shifting to art work..
Good Fall for all,

Hello Dear Fans,
Year has changed again – but it seems that we are still the same.
Tenhi Core team Tyko, Tuukka and I taking small trips to audio wonderland
trying to figure out the elusive art of making records.
Music goes the same old lane for us.
Slow evolution and then degeneration and then distraction etc.
Lots of experimentation has certainly occurred.
And lots of songs too. Some of them good – some of them need a little work.
We are committed to bring you the best – the VERY BEST. THE ….ok
One thing is for certain ( our new year’s resolution) no more festival live shows…
Next live show will be a concert of our own making. But we will finish the forth coming album before this.
Love for Music is still there.

21st September 2015
It was such a pleasure to meet all of you fans and experience the beautiful atmosphere at the Prophecy Fest 2015. There were people from over thirty different countries including Finland, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Romania, Russia, Egypt, Chile, Mexico (thanks for the gifts), China, and even from Tasmania – pretty much the opposite side of the world! You are the best!
Everything was set up for the most beautiful evening and a great show. It must be a cruel twist of fate that the monitor sound (meaning no sound at all) on stage was the most terrible we have ever experienced on our live shows. Too much energy and focus went off rails just trying to hear anything else than drums.
Anyway for us meeting all of you was alone worth the trip – hope you got something in return too!
With love and respect,

Just few days till the fest and things are shaping up!
The exhibition art pieces are looking amazing. Presented will be Saivo images, some Folk Aesthetic images and festival poster design. The images are printed on vintage wooden panels and the sizes differ from 1189mm x 598mm to 420mm x 841mm. These exclusive and signed images are for sale – a chance to get truly unique Tenhi-art pieces!
Available for purchase are also couple of smaller A5-size images printed on wooden cards and wall canvases with Folk Aesthetic graphic.
Get your own copies and be sure to bring them to the signing session!
See you soon!
Tenhi merchandise with two classic designs will be available on Prophecy Fest! “Folk Aesthetic” (t-shirt, girlie, zipper) and “Kertomuksia” (t-shirt).

Hello Dear Fans,
Only few rehearsals before hitting the balve gig…
Still some things to be done on our checklist but some sort of musical shape is emerging finally.
There will be no pyrotechnics, no bells and whistles — just poorly played Tenhi songs for your amusement!
Hope to see as many of you dear fans there as possible. This might be the only live event for some time now. And you know when we talk about “some time” it might mean a BIG while.
Line up for the show:
vocals, ac. guitar
ac. guitar, vocals

Hello fans of our noise,
There have been rumours circulating that perhaps Tyko and I have entered the next reality and abandoned our earthly remains…
Surely this is not that case. The band and persons behind the scenes are doing just fine. Our focus and energy is constantly where our art lies.
Somewhat intentionally/unintentionally our feed has been at minimal level…
We are the most anaemic updaters and posters of stuff concerning the band.
Here are few things happening:
-studio – we have gathered a lot of old dirty analog stuff…nice hybrid set up (for tech geeks)
-music – too much songs to work on (and no good ones…)
-concept – yes yes. It will be a story and concept album (…not a disney one)
-Collaboration – with Ville Valo and Mikael Åkerfeldt (not this time…)
So there shut up whining about posts!!!!
One update post for year should be enough…
…next update coming 2015
14th February 2013
We have built us a great location for recording and the preliminary material done there shows real potential. The effort was to make a longer term base for our creative work. Basic schema for the coming album is being unfolded and we have some ten new songs hatching up. Currently we are laying down basic tracks for the songs.
Some new working titles for the songs are:
Sydämes on tiel
Finnish Femma nomination
We are happy to announce that Tenhi is nominated for a Finnish Femma award in “folk” category. The Femma music awards is an alternative event for more commercial and mainstream Emma awards. The event is held tomorrow in Club Virgin Oil Helsinki.

From Prophecy newsletter:
With pleasure we announce that Tenhi, one of the first and most productive Prophecy bands, extended their contract with Prophecy for two further albums. Since the “Hallavedet” single CD (1998), Tenhi released five studio albums and the anniversary compilation “Folk Aesthetic 1996-2006” via Prophecy. The cooperation has so far been topped off by the comprehensive vinyl box set “The Collected Works”, which was released in December 2011 and comprises Tenhi’s complete body of work.
Tyko Saarikko (Tenhi) on the contract extension: “We are happy and proud that we will continue on the path we started with Prophecy Productions fifteen years ago. The accomplished albums have been based on our artistic freedom and Prophecy’s patience to let us choose our own pace of creating music. We feel confident that by extending the collaboration with Prophecy our expression has the opportunity to refine and even grow into new lengths.”
