User comments for Kaija (Famous Bearer Only)

Kaija Lustila is an award-winning Finnish singer. She first came to fame as a tango singer; now her repertoire includes evergreens, iskelmä and Finnish pop. Her career began in 1982, when she had the opportunity to audition with Risto Oja-Lipasti's band. She made such a great impression that she was taken on tour immediately. Within a few years she had made such an impression on the dancing public that she formed her own band Pajero with herself as solo singer. In 1987 she entered the prestigious Tangomarkkinat competition and reached the finals, though she did not win. One of her fellow competitors was Aura Stenroth, the mother of 2007 Tango King Henri Stenroth. Her first album was "Sellaiset silmät" (Eyes Like These) in 1992. Other albums followed in 1994, 1999, 2004 and 2011. In 1999 she took part in the Sysyn sävel competition with "Kaukainen tähti".
