Sad news today as we read of the passing of Tarmo Leinatamm. Leinatamm died after a battle with cancer. He was a celebrated comedian, conductor, politician, singer and entertainer.

He appeared at Eurovision for Estonia on 3 occasions. He was the conductor of the orchestra for Estonia in 1996 and 1997 when Estonia placed 5th and 8th in the contest.

He then returned to the contest in 2008 as singer and composer of the song  ‘Leto Svet’ that was performed by the band Kresiraadio.

Our sympathies are with his wife and 2 children at this time.
