The Sámi people live across the borders of northern Scandinavia, Finland, and throughout the Kola Peninsula of north-western Russia. Joik is their characteristic vocal tradition, consisting of units of sound that have traditionally been used to invoke a person, animal, place, or experience. Formerly practiced by Sámi shamans in order to facilitate communication with the spirit world, traditional joik continues to engage with the sacred on an essential level; one does not joik ‘about’ something; one simply ‘joiks it’. On this two-part course, Merlyn Driver takes you on a journey through joik, encompassing both its key musical and philosophical components.
