About this Event

Mari Boine is an award winning Norwegian Sami musician known for having added jazz and rock to the traditional singing of her native people. Boine sings in a traditional folk style, using the 'yoik' voice, together with a wide range of accompanying instruments and percussion. Almost 30 years have passed since Mari Boine swept music lovers around the globe off their feet with her astonishing solo album “Gula Gula” which was released internationally on Peter Gabriel’s famous RealWorld label. For “Gula Gula” Mari received the first of her three Norwegian Grammy Award. A decade and many releases later, Mari was recognized with the Nordic Council’s Music Prize. This special award acknowledged her artistic achievements, but also her ability to connect with a global audience while still maintaining her integrity as a Sámi. She is also appointed first class in the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav, an honorary doctorate at the University of Tromsø, and then finally - she was the recipient of the Norwegian Grammys honorary award in 2018.

With her unique voice infused by the long time oppressed shaman culture of the Norwegian Sami, an indigenous people often compared to Native Americans, she’s created a sound universe of her own with an almost trance-like folk music. She has inspired indigenous artists the world over is today revered as a truly unique artist whose trajectory led her to release more than a dozen highly-acclaimed solo albums and collaborate with stellar Norwegian jazz musicians like Jan Garbarek and Bugge Wesseltoft. For 2018 she was awarded the Norwegian Grammy honorary award.
