Ánnámáret is Anna Näkkäläjärvi-Länsman, Sámi musician who lives and whose work is based in Nuorgam, northernmost Finland. Her music is inspired by the life and the nature in Sápmi. Ánnámáret’s strength as an artist springs from having grown up between two cultures and, thus, in understanding these cultures and their collisions and similarities.

Dreamscapes combines indigenous Sámi vocal music yoik to ancient sound of Finnish bowed lyre jouhikko, played by Ilkka Heinonen and organic live electronics, played by Turkka Inkilä. The music gains influence from both the rich tradition of yoik and the vibrant Sámi culture and Arctic nature, by taking to strongly experiential worlds by means of music and images. The concert is accompanied by Marja Viitahuhta’s video art that is created based on Ánnámáret’s innermost visions and images in her joiks.

“The theme of the concert is important to me and it has been developed during a personal process, when I listened to yoiks that belonged to my family from archive recordings. The Nieguid duovdagat concept expresses thoughts about life at the turning point of traditional and modern culture. I am particularly interested in why we have the need to study history and our roots. What does it signify to us? Is it the expression of a personal need, a question of developing an identity or a political action? Is it even possible to revive culture?”, Ánnámáret wonders.
