Eamiritni / Rimeborn

by Elin Kåven

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Elin feirer sine 10 år som artist med et veldig personlig album, der hun for første gang virkelig tar i bruk sin kulturarv - nemlig joiken. Man joiker det som betyr mest for en, så Elin har joiket blant annet bestemoren sin, niesen, og katta si.

    Albumet ble gitt ut i Tyskland i november 2015, og ble nominert i kategorien The Traditional Ethnic Music under German Record Critics’ Award. Albumet kom ut i Norge i februar 2016, og fikk straks terningkast 6 hos Romerike Blad.

    "Eamiritni er et strålende eksempel på fornyelse og revitalisering av eldgammel musikktradisjon uten at grunntonene går tapt. Et strålende album!"

I want to show you my gratitude for you for listening to my music. I feel blessed to have been able to continue my dreams of singing, performing and recording music in Sámi for ten years now. It has been a journey that has led to this album. It is my third solo album, but for me it feels like my debut album, because why I express myself through voice has changed. In this album I am much more influenced by the traditional sami yoik. The past few years I more clearly see the uniqueness of our culture – the Sami culture, as I have travelled around the world, and seen similarities and differences compared to other cultures. This has inspired me to highlight and celebrate our uniqueness through art.
I have also understood the importance of knowing my own culture and heritage. It is easy to feel lost without roots to nurture and take knowledge and values from. The making of this album has brought me closer to my origin, and has made me feel reborn.
Three years ago I moved back to Sápmi after 16 years away. I decided to do this because I wanted to bring the experience of the arctic life with me on stage. I wanted to be and manifest the qualities that come from the arctic living and culture. I am aiming to express and share these values on stage, therefore it was important to me that I return to my roots and live my culture every day. This has resulted in tracks that are personal, and inspired by the way music is made in Sami culture.
It is common practice to yoik people, mountains, nature and animals for Sami people. On this album you will hear yoiks and songs dedicated to my cat Lynxie, my neice Enya, my grandmother Inga, trees, a dance festival - Gothla.uk - that shaped my life, and personal experiences while living in Sápmi the past few years.
My birthday is in autumn-winter, and it is the season of both green leaves and rime. It is the most beautiful season of the year to me. Enjoy!
Ává/hugs Elin Kåven
