JOIK – TRADITIONAL SAMI SINGING WORKSHOPS

[John André Eira]

Scena Muzyczna Globaltica

Joik (or yoik) is a traditional song form considered by researchers to be one of the longest-lived musical traditions in Europe. The worldview of the Sámas – indigenous peoples of northern Europe who live in Norway, Finland, Sweden and Russia – is based on shamanism, and yoik creates an emotional connection between people, animals and nature. With the Christianization of the Sámas, singing joik was considered a sin. Today, the tradition of joik singing is still alive and is also used as a source of inspiration and part of the modern music of this northern people.

Esteemed vocalist John André Eira will lead a workshop on traditional Sami music. He will present the history of joik singing, tracing its roots from ancient times to modern practice. Eira will discuss the cultural significance of this tradition in the Samoan community, illustrating how it has evolved and adapted over the generations while maintaining its primary role. Workshop participants will have a unique opportunity to learn about the different styles and techniques of yoka, as well as the contexts in which they are traditionally performed. In addition, John will engage participants in hands-on sessions, encouraging them to try to perform the learned yoka together.
