“Spiritual food through musical mood”

Professor René Gothóni began taking private piano lessons when he was nine and studied piano playing at Pori Music College (Porin musiikkiopisto) 1961-1967. He learned to play guitar by himself and wrote songs, which he recorded in the late sixties. In 2010, he transformed them to a CD with the title René Gothóni Nostalgic 1966-1971 to celebrate his sixtieth birthday. Encouraged by the good response he decided to empty his desk drawer from songs in Swedish and English he had written between the years 1972-2011. Inspired by the support, he also wrote new songs, resulted in the following CDs (on Spotify!).
