A great feeling of happiness to collaborate with Tinka Steinhoff Booking 🤩 It feels like a huge step in my artistic career to have someone helping me broaden the landscape of South Saami music abroad. Even though there’s no traveling at the moment, I do look forward visiting the amazing venues that Europe have to offer! Until then, I’m writing new yoiks, music and lyrics 🎵

📸 Terje TrobeA few months ago, I met a woman who impressed me deeply: South Saami singer Marja Mortensson.

Her native tongue, the South Saami language, is spoken by less then 500 people worldwide, and yet she chose it to be her performing language - by yoiking. Initially this is an art form of singing with or without words, yoiks are meant to reflect or evoke a person, an animal or a place. Marja re-discovered many South Saami yoiks and performs them in her own, stunning way - and moreover she writes her own songs.

This one for example: youtu.be/G6q3rT63iA8

What Marja Mortensson brings on stage is the songwriting and storytelling of a woman of the 21st century who has traveled the world but is deeply connected with her heritage.

Det finnes fortsatt konserter (!), og hadde jeg vært i Tromsø i morgen så hadde jeg definitivt hørt på denne! To av gutta i jeg spiller aller mest med er i aksjon i morgen kveld, med helt ny musikk 🤩
