Marja Mortensson and Daniel Herskedal, new album: Lååje – Dawn
The Norwegian Grammy Award Winners Marja Mortensson and Daniel Herskedal are releasing their first duo album together, aptly named LÅÅJE – DAWN.
Mortensson’s and Herskedal’s music transcends borders. As such, their music moves effortlessly through the borderlands between South and Ume Saami yoik melodies, where it finds itself swinging back and forth between tradition and the musical compositions of classical string quartets. The melodies imitate standing stones, carefully rooted menhirs, who guide the listener from the gravity and melancholy of a planet finally speaking up against our treatment of her, to the playful yoik melodies associated with woodpeckers and ptarmigans.
Marja Mortensson, New album: Mojhtestasse – Cultural Heirlooms

Ah, it's so nice, it's so elegant (Klassekampen)
The album is really beautiful and adventurous! (HA)

Take note of the name! Her name is now on everyone’s lips when Sámi artists are the topic
She has performed for the King of Norway, toured in Japan, contributed to large TV-productions, collaborated with The Norwegian Radio Orchestra, Mari Boine, Kirsten Bråten Berg, Ronnie Le Tekrø – just to name a few.
New CD: Katarina Barruk – Báruos
Katarina Barruk has already established herself as an exceptional Sami artist on the Nordic music scene. She composes her own music, and although her genre is close to the pop, rock and singer/songwriter traditions, her music clearly stands out from the crowd by her usage of the Ume Sami language.
She also includes elements from the Sami yoik tradition, a factor which contributes strongly to the unique sound of the production.
Katarina has collaborated with Frode Fjellheim who has arranged and produced her music. The album is now ready: Báruos – Uncovered/Revealed.
