”It’s been 75 years since the war ended, and Kristiina (my mother) gave birth to Kristiina (me).
That’s something to celebrate! 75 years of peace and love!
”Born for peace”, said Elvi Sinervo. It obliges.
To celebrate by singing songs that obligate? Songs with messages that remain.
Songs that one still remembers, asking: What was it that Moses Makone did?
And of course the majority of the songs have been written before the year -75.”
Kristiina Halkola, 75-years-old
