Hosted by Sami Parliament a night of music, performance and talks.
Hildá Länsman is joik-singer and songwriter from Utsjoki, the northernmost municipality of Finland. Having grown up with the ancient traditions of reindeer husbandry, handicraft (duodji) and luohti (yoik), she connects her background with contemporary world music and academic studies in the Global Music programme at Sibelius Academy. Hildá has performed widely both in Finland and internationally and is standing out with her uniquely ethereal, shrilling, growling and clear voice. She is a proud upholder of the Sámi culture and yoik-tradition. Hildá Länsman is the front-figure of several critically acclaimed Sámi music groups; Solju, VILDÁ, Gájanas and collaboration project with Tuomas Norvio.
