Have a great new year!

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.

zwischenwelten by Senad Palic

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.

Tenhi ‘Folk Aesthetic 1996-2006’ – compilation


Good news for anyone who has been craving for rare and unreleased material from us.

We just finished mastering the music and completing the cover artwork of the 10th year celebration compilation album called Tenhi ‘Folk Aesthetic 1996-2006’. It includes over three hours of rare and unreleased material from the years 1996-2006. The release date is not sure yet but it will be released during this summer/autumn. The idea is to make a “book-like“ format with some info about each song, lyrics and translations and more. I also drew the artwork specially for it. More news posted soon about the release date.

Tenhi etsii jousisoittajaa (viulisti, alttoviulisti tai sellisti) täydentämään live-kokoonpanoa ja mahdollisesti myös soittamaan levyille. Suunnitelmissa on keikkoja loppuvuodesta Euroopassa ja Suomessa. Nykyinen viulistimme ei pääse mukaan keikoille, joten etsimme korvaavaa esiintyjää.

Eli hyvän asenteen ja soittotaidon omaavat jousisoittajat voivat lähettää vapaamuotoisen tarinansa sähköpostitse sekä demon soitostaan yhteydenottoa varten. Tekninen suoritus ei ole tärkeintä vaan tulkinta ja hyvä tuntuma soittimeen.

Lähettäkää siis:
-taustatiedot (soittokokemus, ikä, asuinpaikka etc.)
-muutama demo soitosta mp3 muodossa

UTUstudio production

Marja’s fifth studio album Polku (‘path’) will be released in 15. February 2007. This time the arrangements and production are made by Ilmari Issakainen and Tyko Saarikko, two members of the Finnish neofolk band Tenhi.

Marja Mattlar is as uncompromising in concert as she is in studio, preferring to perform solo with classical guitar in small rooms with no amplification. She has performed in this way in many small country villages throughout Finland and abroad, making full use of the intimate contact with the audiences. When the situation is right, Marja will also perform in larger spaces with amplification and a few backing musicians.

TENHI live

Yeah, it’s true. What there is more to say…see all of you there.

The show will probably be acoustic based and will concentrate on Airut themes. It will blow you away. We have huge windmachines.

We are also booking more shows for this year and you are better not to miss any of them.
