Since 2007 jyrkipr has been an SHS "certified" contributor for more than 10 years in a period of time, when the word "certified" had not been invented yet at our website!

More than 1000 submissions were done by him over the years and recently we have been able to close down his last outstanding one.

He is partly responsible for the fact that today more than 5000 Finnish works (covers and originals) are in the SHS database and more than 9500 performances. This makes Finnish the #4 language in the database, even placed before Spanish or Portuguese..........

We would like to thank Jyrki for all the hard work and his inspiring submissions showing us that Suomi has a lively and interesting music industry.

Let us all go to Helsinki (or Kuopio or Rovaniemei, for that matter..........) and sing the Finlandia Hymn by one of his country's most famous sons Jean Sibelius.

Thanks again, Jyrki!

What?! It is hard to believe that he hasn't been a member of this wonderful company. I hope that someone could invite him/her. He or she is someone who is very committed.


From people around the world, we could the help we can get. Smile

He was actually invited a couple of years ago. Those days, the answer was "I am grateful for the confidence but right now I do not have enough time to perform a task. I am interested in the work. I promise I will be available later".

Maybe he would be happy to join us now?

Great work! When I was in Finland everyone I met seemed surprised that anyone with no connection to their country would be interested in it. Hope this helps people see some of the cultural richness.


Off to listen to my favorite (Finnish) accordionist, Maria Kalaniemi now. Smile
