Maini Sorri - You Are On My Mind Front Cover - Normal SizeMaini Sorri‘s single You Are On My Mind  got great reviews. Tunedloud Magazine wrote:

“The song is a collaborative effort by lyricist Barbro Norberg, music composer Maini Sorri, who also sings the song, and instrumental maker Jaakko Viitala. The track deals with Norberg’s sense of loss and longing after her dad’s passing away.”

“If you’re looking for songs with lots of emotional depth and substance, this is the track for you.”

“It’s a track by a mature woman who has mastered expressing vulnerability and celebrating emotions without sounding predictable or highly-strung.”

“With a refreshing sense of honesty, tremendous musical instincts and an alluring vocal tone, Maini’s connection to the music is an authentic one.” Read the whole review from October 26th 2018 here.

Rebecca Cullen at Stereo Stickman wrote: “Maini Sorri returns to release yet another creatively unique single”….”From a songwriting perspective, this is one of the most memorable melodies of Sorri’s to date.”

“Lyrically the release is a stunning poetic ode to a lost relative. Barbro Norberg writes on the passing of her father in a commendable way, bringing through heart-breaking ideas but also a strong focus on the positives – the good memories, the togetherness. Maini Sorri’s gentle voice lets the lyrics shine brightly throughout.”

“There’s an Enya-like feel to the presentation, the voice drives as if simply another instrument, so the collaboration just works.” Read the whole review from October 22nd 2018 here.

Act One Magazine wrote: “The combination of the tone, sound and melody in the music matches the lyrics extremely well and the result is warm, heartfelt and all in all a great song with both a great melody and outstanding lyrics.” Read the whole review from October 26th 2018 here.

When 2 Worlds meet article scanned 800Maini and Magneto Dayo were interviewed by Daily Press, Virginia, Samantha Camilletti in Summer 2017. The interview was published on July 17th, 2017.

‘When 2 Worlds Meet’ set to release this Summer

“Swedish Finnish singer Maini Sorri and hip-hop artist Magneto Dayo say they hope their new album “When 2 Worlds Meet” will shake up the stigma of genres and change lives after its release later this summer.

Maini Sorri Hongslo and Magneto Dayo, born Dashawn Williams, are two solo artists who came together purely by chance to create this album.

“It was a wonderful surprise that he found me on the internet and told me that he likes my songs and wanted to collaborate and record with me,” Sorri said. “It was really exciting. Two worlds definitely met.”

The album will be a mixture of hip hop and electronica pop.

Dayo was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., but moved to Newport News when he was 14, he said.

“This will sound like nothing you’ve ever heard. This album is really for the people that love good music,” Dayo said. “When I say that, I’m talking about the people that are not locked into one genre, but people that love the sound of great music, regardless of the genre.”

Although from different genres, Dayo and Sorri seemed to agree that their music is about bringing people together and binding them over a common cause.

“I hope that our songs will be many people’s favorites. I always hope that as many as possible will hear my music, enjoy it and share it, and I hope that we will spread peace, love and understanding to the world,” Sorri said. “Let’s appreciate our differences and treat each other as we want to be treated, with love and respect. We don’t want to build walls, we want to build bridges.”
