Ánde Somby is deeply rooted in the yoik tradition of the Sami people. Sami are the nomadic people living above the North pole circle in Scandinavia. Although suppressed in history, Yoiking is according to some one of the longest-living music traditions in Europe. It is traditional singing evoking animals, persons or places. Somby keeps this tradition alive and kicking, learned by his mother and father. Today, in another part of Europe, Yoiking sounds as outworldish as the most extreme vocal poetry, using radical expressive vocal techniques and confronting listeners with their own embodied potential.
