VILDÁ

When Hildá and Viivi heard each other’s music for the first time, an idea was born to combine yoik and accordion. Are the ancient singing form of the Sami, and the accordion, the traditional Finnish instrument from so different worlds that they have not been paired before? Duo VILDÁ combines mystical yoiks, swinging rhythms and improvisation in a fascinating way. Influenced by contemporary pop music and Finnish folk music, a unique soundtrack is born that will carry the listener to the northern fells, where the winds of the Sámiland blow. Hildá Länsman (Sámiland/ Finland) – vocals, joik, drumViivi Maria Saarenkylä (Finland) – accordion, backing vocals
