The traditional joik is a vocal practice of the Sami, a people who settled in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. It is used to evoke the presence of a person, of someone who is deceased, or of an animal, through a poetic song that expresses the character – good or bad – of the subject. The joiks at Bozar are performed by three Sami singers from Norway, amidst a visual installation by Inger Elisabeth Gleditsch and with musical accompaniment for female voice, small percussion instruments and electronics by Aya Suzuki and Gilles Gobert.
