Sofia Laiti

Singer and recording artist Sofia Laiti was born in Lapland, the unique society in the northernmost arctic area of Finland. Since early childhood, she had a strong desire to use her voice to entertain. “My mother and father told me I was singing as soon as I could talk!”

As a teenager, Sofia studied classical music in the Music Conservatory at Kuopio, in the east of Finland, paying close attention to great classical vocalists. Here, she developed a solid musical foundation upon which to build her career.

With this background, Laiti evolved from classical to jazz, and made her move to Helsinki, the music capital of Finland. Throughout the 1980's, she made a significant impact there, winning major prizes and grants, with distinguished appearances at top clubs and festivals such as the Pori Jazz International.
