Maarja Kivi-Meriste: this new Vanilla Ninja album is a surprise also to me

Vanilla Ninja, a girlband extremely popular in their times, announced a return some time ago and informed they were not coming back in the original line-up, with Triinu Kivilaan rejoining Lenna Kuurmaa, Piret Järvis-Milder and Katrin Siska. But why wasn’t Maarja Kivi-Meriste, now living in Los Angeles, invited to join? Long distance can’t be the obstacle taking into consideration that Katrin Siska, for example, lives in Cape Town.
To be absolutely honest, this new album is a surprise also to me, just like the fact that they are working with David Brandes again. – reveals Maarja Kivi in an interview with Sky.ee.
Shortly after Maarja left the band, Vanilla Ninja signed for the new record label, which years later became the doom for the whole band.
It’s funny, how the world runs. But time heals all wounds. Given the fact that I wasn’t involved this time, I wouldn’t expect any cooperation in the nearest future. – said Kivi.

Piret about Vanilla Ninja’s comeback

Last week, former Vanilla Ninja members revealed on their social media that they were going to reunite and release a new album next year.
Actually, I guess you could say that the new Vanilla Ninja will sound like the old Vanilla Ninja. We don’t want to shock anybody, so I think those people, that liked Vanilla Ninja’s music 15 years ago, will be happy, because the sound remains quite the same. What I really like is that we are not going to try out a new, modern sound image, but stick to our roots. – said Piret Järvis-Milder in Raadio 2’s morning show “Hommikus!”.

Manna ja Lenna

Singer Lenna Kuurmaa started hosting a new radio program “Manna ja Lenna” together with Raadio Elmar’s editor-in-chief Mari-Liis Männik. The show airs on Raadio Elmar every Monday from 14:00 to 18:00.
The program is going to be fun, positive and filled with subjects that women can relate to. Manna and Lenna will often talk about very personal issues. They will certainly encourage listeners to express their opinions and play fun radio-games with them. As there will be two Estonian music lovers in the studio, exciting conversations with musicians will surely go on air.
