Ijahis Idja

This year, the seminar of the Ijahis Idja music festival has “The Voices of the Earth” as its theme. The theme reflects the special connection that indigenous peoples have to the land and the way in which the nature around them affects their music.

The oral tradition which has transferred information on the cultural environment, too, from one generation to another is an integral part of the Sámi cultural heritage. Thus, places play a special role in the music and the narrative tradition of the Sámi: yoiks on persons often mention a place that is of importance for the person, but places can also have their own yoiks or stories.

The seminar at Siida looks at Sámi and Tuvan music from the points of view of the cultural environment and the passing down of the heritage.

The speakers will be throat singer Igor Koshkendei, Tiina Aikio and Juhani Magga, Marko Jouste and Wimme Saari. The seminar is free for everyone.
