Lenna Kuurmaa: coming back to the city does not seem logical at the moment

Lenna Kuurmaa, who had been living in Setomaa for quite some time now, was recently a guest on the Estonian TV show „Hommik Anuga” and stated that it did not seem logical for her at the moment to move back to the city.

Kuurmaa, who was raised in Mustamäe but now lives more than 250 km from Tallinn, admitted that now she feels out of place whenever she is in the city.

I try to enjoy this environment and see the positives, but in fact, I feel that my centre and my place, where I am at peace and happy, is in the countryside. I do not feel that way in the city anymore.

Kuurmaa described her experiences in a handbook directed to those who, just like her, would like to move from the city to the countryside

I wish to spread the idea that the countryside is enjoyable and encourage those people. There are more and more people who say that it is so nice and fun but how to leave everything behind and go through with this change.

Lenna’s first book – “Elu Ilmaveerel”

What happens when you change the course of your life overnight and turn everything you have known and have been familiar with upside down?
The singer Lenna Kuurmaa, who conquered the charts and hearts with her music, during the first corona-spring in Tallinn packed her suitcases and her family – husband Lauri, daughters Ami and Matilda and decided overnight to move before the pandemic to the farthest corner of Estonia, the eastern border of the European Union, to Setomaa. To the house that was not yet ready for year-round living. There are other characters involved in the story of this family, to which the son Kusti was also born – the local community, the fox, chickens and roosters, goats, hedgehogs, birds and many, many others. In this book, the beloved singer tells the story of the growth of her attachment to Setomaa and hopes to inspire you, dear reader.

Book is available for pre-order on Apollo.ee (worldwideshipping) and JES Kirjastus (shipping within Estonia only). The premiere is set for May 13th 2022.
