2023-10-07 – Exploring the Art of Sámi Joik (Webinar)



Saturday, October 7 (3:00-4:00 pm CT)





Facilitated by:

        Elisabeth Berg


This is an online webinar hosted on Zoom. 


Iŋgor Ántte Áilu Gaup (artist name: Ailloš) grew up in a reindeer-herding family on the Norwegian side of Sápmi, a region that stretches over Norway, Sweden, Finland, and the Kola Peninsula, traditionally the home of the indigenous Sámi population. Ailloš and joiking are inseparable. He has been joiking as long as he can remember, and it has become key to his work as composer, actor, and teacher. The joik is the traditional form of Sámi song. It has its own musical rules and a very special connection to nature and all living beings. Join us to hear Ailloš tell us about his life in the far North and hear him joik for us: you will enjoy his daughter’s joik, the puppy’s and the wolf’s joiks, the beauty of nature’s joik, and maybe some others!
