"Sung in the Sámi language and drawing on the influence of the indigenous Sámi chant known as yoik, [Boine] veers towards the mystical while being grounded in earthiness. Vaguely comparable to Celtic counterparts in some ways, Boine’s music nonetheless has a voice all its own."

— JazzTimes


ABOUT MARI BOINE

Imagine the ice and snow of the Arctic landscape, the bitter cold of the Northern wind, the hint of compelling blue under a crystallized lake. Close your eyes. Then listen. Really listen. You’ll feel a voice before you even hear it. It’s like none other. It’s a voice that brings the landscape alive with a mesmerizing purity; a voice that represents a thousand years of ancestral connection to an unyielding frozen space.

This is Mari Boine. 

Musician. Songwriter. Singer. A genre-bending trailblazer with a taste for jazz, folk, rock, and world. An artist whose music is inspired by and infused with her Sámi roots. A woman who knows who she is, where she’s come from and what she stands for. A music icon who has inspired indigenous artists the world over.
