Yoiking

By | Voice | No Comments

Yoiking is a very melodic rhythmical way of singing, sometimes with words sometimes without words. Traditionally the songs would have spoken of life and work, reindeer, journeyings, migrations, hunting, weather and love. The Same (Lapp’s) people today can be found in four distinct areas – northern parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland and┬áthe Kola peninsula in northern Russia. A singer who has pioneered this style is Mari Boine from Norway.
