Tuu mun mukaan (Come With Me)
Helsinki Police Symphonic Band vocalist Onni Lonka composed a song about friendship and respecting each other. With the song, Onni and the band hope to prevent bullying, still too regularly occuring at school environments.
In November 2020, ‘Tuu mun mukaan’ was elected as the Children’s Song Of The Year in Finland. There were ten songs from which the public could vote their favourite from. The ten songs were hand-picked by professional musicians working with children’s music.
