It seems that every album from Tenhi has taken a lot of time and love to be completed – Saivo is no exception for sure.
I will try to open a bit where we are at the moment so that you can get a grasp of the current issues we are dealing with.
First of all it seems that we have done now the string arrangements that we planned for this album. Personally I am pleased about the results – tones and textures are earthy and dynamic. The last parts for the songs were played with contrabass which is a new addition to our soundscape. The strings will accompany guitars really nicely on this record…
Now we are entering the mastering phase. The final touches and tweaking is done to get the record out. Knowing us this can take a while though!
A big question is that will Saivo be double album…?
Anyways it will be a good one…

Sorry for the sparse updates about ‘Saivo’. We hoped to get the album out this summer and didn’t want to disappoint you before all hope was gone. Despite the hopefully final delays, the album is well underway and the final parts are being recorded within couple of weeks, namely choirs and cello parts. We plan to finish our works on the album by the end of August eventually. ‘Saivo’ has taken its time and we didn’t want to rush it. Almost every of the songs has gone through a huge variety of alternative arrangements until we felt that we had achieved best result.
Another excellent news is that Prophecy Prophecy productions will rerelease all our previous full-length albums: ‘Kauan’, ‘Väre’, ‘Airut:aamujen’ and ‘Maaäet’ with special and significantly enhanced booklets and artwork. Stay tuned for more information about these re-issues!

A sincere thanks to everyone for comments and patience…
It is truly nice to see that our music is echoing all around the world!
So have a nice one!

Here is a little teaser we made for you.
11th August 2009
Just finished writing the lyrics for the new album and now we are going to start recording the vocals. I also shot some 8mm footage during the summer from which I hope to craft a music video for a song from the new album. Also Ilmari took some great photos which we are probably going use in the covers.
10th April 2009
We have just finished the bass recording sessions for Saivo and things look great! It seems that we are heading for a slow, deep and dark waters…
Hopefully we will put some clips online later on — this might be tomorrow or few years from now.
So stay tuned and have a good Easter.

Night of Folk Aesthetic
We are really happy to announce thrilling news for all who have waited for our live performance here in Finland. We will play our first show in Helsinki at club Gloria 11.10.2008. Moreover we are extremely proud to bring DORNENREICH and SIEBEN first time to Finland to play with us at ‘Night of Folk Aesthetic’. We are also looking for fourth band as opening act so there is more to it still. TENHI and DORNENREICH will play special acoustic based shows so this is something surely not to be missed. More detailed news to follow.
New album SAIVO
We are finished upgrading our studio and we will continue the recording after celebrating the midsummer’s eve.
I am sorry to announce that the wall-flags were sold out after couple of days after the news was released. I will however make second edition of them as so many fans have been asking for them. These will not be sold on pre-sale so please don’t ask for them before I announce that they are ready after couple of months.
21st February 2008
The new songs for the coming album ‘Saivo’ are evolving nicely. We however stand now in a rather unorthodox situation as we never have had so much new material waiting to be recorded.
Here are some working titles for the songs.

Ilkka Salminen is no longer in Tenhi
Ilkka Salminen has now officially left the band. We decided to announce this as there has been some speculation around the matter.
This isn’t a dramatic change in the band at all but rather awaited decision. His contribution has decreased along the years and his personal interests lie elsewhere, while for us the band has become even more crucial part of our lives.
Despite this he will still be around as a friend for sure…
So thanks for the past years –rock on!
Here by Ilkka’s own words:
I have now officially left Tenhi.
This is my own decision and I want you to know that it happens in the best spirit between all of us. It might not be a surprise for you, as my contribution in Tenhi has decreased ever since we released Maaäet. For the time being I haven’t got the possibility to devote myself to Tenhi anymore with the same intensity as Tyko and Ilmari.
I’m extremely proud and happy for everything we achieved in Tenhi and it all means an awful lot to me. I feel privileged that for the past decade I was given the possibility to create music with such talents as Tyko and Ilmari. I think Tenhi is doing very well in their care, and I encourage them to carry on the Tenhi saga for a long time.
On my behalf I’d like to thank all of you Tenhi fans for the fantastic support you’ve given throughout the years. I wish you all the best, keep Tenhi flame burning!
We have made limited edition of wall-flags from three ‘Folk Aesthetic’ graphics (10 copies from each, with signatures). We will put them on Utustudio online shop for sale as well as TENHI shirts/sweatshirts later this spring.
29th December 2007
All the best for the coming year on behalf of Tenhi.
Here is one video from our small tour in Germany. It is a live acoustic guitar version of ‘luopumisen laulu’ from airut:aamujen. Thanks Hilmar for shooting it.
We also did new lay-out for out site including the ‘folk aesthetic’ graphics. Hope you will like it. More news about the new album entitled ‘Saivo’ and new utustudio merchandize (wall-flags etc.) in the first weeks in 2008.
12th September 2007
So the small tour is over. Thanks for everyone who showed up for the shows. We were extremely happy to see so much fans and people interested in our music. We also would like to thank Neun Welten for taking good care of us and being great band to tour with.
Only one conclusion can be made after these shows and the feedback we got… we certainly will do loads of more shows in the future. We hadn’t tried this acoustic line-up before but it really worked great.
We will upload some photos of the events soon. Fans are free to send us some photos so we can share the atmosphere of the shows to others as well. Here are some pre-taste of the Zwischenwelten festival shooted by Senad Palic.
8th August 2007
The lineup for the coming acoustic based shows is:
Jaakko Hilppö: bass, vocals
Ilmari Issakainen: acoustic guitar, vocals
Paula Rantamäki: violin
Tyko Saarikko: acoustic guitar, vocals
Tuukka Tolvanen: acoustic guitar, vocals
