Mihai Trăistariu's song Tornero is a success in Finland and Sweden. Tornero entered the Finnish singles charts at chart position 8, and it now sits at position 40 on the Swedish singles charts after peaking at number 21. In addition Mihai's full album is scheduled to launch in Scandinavia early next month.
The Swedish division of Warner Brothers Records approached Roton, Mihai's Romanian Record Company, and asked to release his full album Tornero in Scandinavia. Of course Mihai and his record company agreed, and the album is now scheduled to launch there in early December.
