Heikki Veikko Harma (born April 20, 1947, Helsinki, Finland) is a Finnish singer-songwriter who has also distinguished himself as a translator of song lyrics. To the public he's better known by the name Hector, which he has used since the release of his debut single "Palkkasoturi", a Finnish translation of Buffy Sainte-Marie's "The Universal Soldier" in 1965. Hector was at the height of his popularity in the first half of the 1970s, but his steady string of recordings provided occasional hits well into the 1990s. Some of Hector's songs are considered classics of Finnish popular music, such as "Lumi teki enkelin eteiseen", "Mandoliinimies" and "Olen hautausmaa", and he can be considered a primary contributor to Finnish rock music of the 1970s.
