‘Bozar Electronic Series: Juoigan’

25 Nov.'21
- 21:00

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 - Johan Sara jr., Lars-Ante Kuhmunen, Anders Nils J. Eira - , amidst a visual installation by Inger Elisabeth Gleditsch and with a performance for female voice, small percussion instruments and electronics by Inger Elisabeth Gleditsch, Aya Suzuki and Gilles Gobert.  ​​​​​​​
