Mari Boine

«The Arctic Room»

Mari Boine is a Norwegian Sami musician, born in 1956. She is known for having added jazz and rock to the yoiks of her native people. The ancient, shamanistic, musical traditions of the Samis of northern Scandinavia, in what was once known as Lapland, are given a modern twist by vocalist and drummer Mari Boine (Persen).

Although her highly rhythmic songs are rooted in the wordless, yodelling-like, vocal style of yoik (or joik), Boine's arrangements incorporate influences of jazz, rock and other ethnic elements. She has won several Norwegian Grammy prizes for her music. You can find a selection of her music in the room, for you to listen to during your visit.
