Katarina Barruk writes and sings in Ume Sámi, a language that is on UNESCO’s list of critically endangered languages, but which many Ume Sámis are taking back today. Barruk invites you to take part in her powerful concert where she captivates the audience with her strong, distinct voice with a modern musical expression.
The music is a mix of atmospheric pop, yoik and improvisation where she addresses topics that range from love to language struggle. All the time based on what it is like to be a young Sámi woman today.
