Poetry & Pop Henri Seger is a young singer-songwriter who will publish his debut album this autumn. Henri plays mostly his own songs but spices things up sometimes with sublime covers of David Bowie or Eliot Smith. Despite his young age, Henri truly has found his own unique voice. Henriikka Tavi (1978) has published two collections. Her first collection Esim. Esa (2007) was a critically acclaimed success, and earlier this year Tavi published her second book Sanakirja. Besides poetry Tavi has translated Friedrich Schiller and some children’s books into Finnish. Sirpa Kyyrönen (1978) has been a central figure of Nihil Interit poetry association for years and her work has been published in magazines such as Parnasso, Nuori Voima and Tuli&Savu. In mid-September Otava will publish Kyyrönen’s debut Naispatsaita.
