At the beginning of the 20th century poet and journalist Eino Leino was the most popular person at the restaurants in Helsinki. His charisma filled whole place and everybody had fun. My Leino performances have the same effect. The Prince of Poems tells the stories of the nation's rising stars and famous artists during the Russian occupation.

"Although my motto is only my modesty exceeds my charm, even today I am considered to be the most beloved poet in Finland". Talented artist's of the early 20th century such as Leino and Jean Sibelius and Axel Gallén created a new national spirit and prepared the ground for Finnish independence. On the other hand, many of them were disreputable for their bohemian lifestyle.
