Solju is formed by Ulla Pirttijärvi and her daughter Hildá Länsman, who combine their heritage of northern Sámi language and traditional chant, known as yoik, with a desire for new and innovative music. Solju provides a dialogue of traditional and modern Sámi culture. Solju is proud of their indigenous roots and want to show it to the world.
“Pirttijärvi has long been on the most distinctive and celebrated voices in joik. On Ođđa Áigodat (New Times), she shows off all of her familiar qualities, while Länsman emerges as one of Sámi music’s brightes new talents.”
