emotional, bubbly and energetic as the French typically are. Tia is a colourful and
interesting, positively unique performer in the Finnish musical scene.
Tia has lived in the Punavuori area of Helsinki, Finland for years now. During her
time in the area she has became known as ”The Sparrow of Punavuori” due to her
grandiose and heartfelt Édith Piaf act. On her concerts she makes the atmosphere of
a Punavuori bar resemble those of Paris in the 50s. While watching her act, one can
feel the emotions of an original Édith Piaf concert when she shook the chanson-scene
on her days.
Tia has had a unique relationship with Mlle Piaf’s music since early ages. As a
three year old toddler she performed Piafesque dance acts to her parents on a never
ending roll. Her parents must have felt uneasy about strong emotional bond that
their child had generated with a beautifully saddened music of a genuine bar rose.
