"Visa"-singer from Finland calling!


"Visa"-singer from Finland calling!

Post by FinHen » Mon Mar 20, 2017 1:07 pm

I'm perfoming as a "visa" artist, accompanying myself on an acoustic guitar. Folk-singer, it is often called, but here in the Nordic countries we have a typical Nordic song, the "visa". Songs vary in tempo, structure, narrative character, expression etc.
I am self-taught, and cannot call myself a musician, but on the other hand, the "visa" is a combination of poetry, music and theatre.

I had a Manuel Lopez Bellido classical guitar once, which, to my great sorrow, was stolen in Helsinki in 1990. I still hope to find it. It had a small indentation, a cavity of some 2mm in the spruce top quite close to the lower end and a round 4 cm sticker up on the head, which I'm sure left a mark.
I now play a japanese Ryoji Matsuoka guitar, and occasionally also a metal string Sigma 00M-15S of classical shape and size.
Always looking for inspiring videos and new tunes, preferably with good lyrics. I do make translations every now and then.

Greetings from the early spring in Helsinki!
