Armed with a violin and bow, Merilyn uses her music to make a statement.
MERVI MYLLYOJA, known more widely as Merilyn, is a Finnish violinist of Karelian roots. The Helsinki-based musician, who has performed in Russia, France, Greece, North Korea and, recently, Egypt, released Ya El Medan (Where Have You Been?), a cover of an Egyptian composition that expresses her solidarity with Egyptians. In just a couple of months, the song has registered over 39,000 YouTube views and Merilyn has received hundreds of letters and emails from Egyptians, surprised but happy to have received her musical message of support.
