Folkways Lappish Joik Songs From Northern Norway
Heard some Joiking on the Radio lately? I’ve added a few different Sami artists over the past weeks. This compilation of Lappish Joik Songs from Northern Norway was released in 1956, you can download all the liner notes from the Smithsonian Folkways website. The liner notes are dated but full of facts about the Lappish or Sami people. My favorite Joikers on this album are: Per Henderak Haetta No. 1-22 and Inga Susanne Haetta No. 25 -27. Check out the album on Spotify.
