about

Nordic Notes | NN067 | Digital Edition

"Elin Kåven's debut album 'Jikŋon Musihkka / Frozen Music' from 2009 is meditative, with a penchant towards the mystical, with influences of traditional sami joik. Intense and quiet vocal with a suggestive music, rich in detail, opens up for a flowing expression." - DAT

If I lie all still
Don’t move
If I don’t even breathe
Will it disappear?
Will I disappear
If they don’t see me
Does that mean
That I don’t excist

Outside I always see
Happy people
Wish I was them
I wouldn’t have to be me
Will I be like that
If I laugh like them
Does that mean
I am like them
All still

Who said that I can’t
Who said that I don’t know how
I listened
I believed

I would attack
I would yell
If it hadn’t been myself

Who said there is no point
Who said it is too late
I listened
I believed

I would attack
I would yell
If it hadn’t been myself

I have music
That is all that I have
I have melodies
That is all that I get
A cold tune
Never heard before
defrosted words
That were written long time ago
Melted, melted, melted

Frozen music that lasts and lasts
Frozen music that lasts and lasts

Rhythm of the heart
Has been beating in the fog
Hidden sounds
That suddenly became clear
Yoik,yoik, yoik

Frozen music that lasts and lasts and lasts
Frozen music that lasts and lasts and lasts

I have music
That is all that I have
I have melodies
That is all that I get
Instruments of the world
That were hidden a long time
November song
Like fallen from the sky
Frozen frozen frozen

Frozen music that lasts and lasts and lasts
Frozen music that lasts and lasts and lasts
Track Name: Dovdu Mii Jávká / Disappearing Feeling
Civká nu civká
Dat dovdu mii jávká
Vuodju nu vuodju
In dieđe gávnnan go
Šattan dan haga jus munnje it fáhte dan

Bážát mu čađa buot maid don skeŋkejit
Bážát mu čađa buot maid don skeŋkejit
Ii leat mihkkege munnje
Ii leat mihkkege munnje

Hárdá ja hárdá
Dat dovdu mii jávká
Čolgá ja čolgá
Ii liiko šat mu
Viggen dan doallat vai in mase du

Bážát mu čađa buot maid don skeŋkejit
Bážát mu čađa buot maid don skeŋkejit
Ii leat mihkkege munnje
Ii leat mihkkege munnje

Sánit leat sánit
Mat devdet ja devdet
Dan saji maid gávdnet
Dat devdet

Twitters and twitters, the disappearing feeling
Sinks and sinks, don’t know if I can find it
I’ll have to be without it
If you don’t catch it for me

You shoot through me
All that you gave as a gift
You shoot through me
All that you gave as a gift
Nothing for me
Nothing for me

Teasing and teasing, the disappearing feeling
Spitting and spitting, doesn’t like me anymore
I try to hold it
So I won’t loose you

You shoot through me
All that you gave as a gift
You shoot through me
All that you gave as a gift
Nothing for me
Nothing for me

Words are words
That fill and fill
The space they find
They will fill
Track Name: Suoivanis / In the Shadow
Lean muitalan manne
Dál dihtet buot
Seainnit
Lean čájehan dovdduid
Oidne visot
Seainnit

In dárbbaš ballat
Letne ovttas
Suoivanis
Nu mielas guldalit
Don áddet buot
Suoivanis
Suoivva ii muitte
Čuovvu dušše

Sánit dutnje ain
skeaŋkkat dutnje ain

Don it šat boahtán
Muht’ leat ain dás
Suoivanis
Don leat mu bálddas
Oainnán du
Suoivanis

Suoivva ii muitte
Vaikke čuovvu buot

Sánit dutnje ain
skeaŋkkat dutnje ain

Sánit dutnje skeaŋkkat dutnje attán dutnje ain
Hállu dutnje, salla dutnje, attán dutnje ain

I have told them why
Now they know everything
The walls
I showed all my feelings
They saw everything
The walls
I don’t have to worry
We are together
In the shadow
You listen
And understand
In the shadow
The shadows don’t remember
They just follow

Words for you still
Gifts for you still
You didn’t come anymore
But you are here still

In the shadow
Right next to me
I can see you
In the shadow
Shadows don’t remember
Even if they follow all

Words for you still
Gifts for you still
I give to you still
Track Name: Du Lusa / To Where You Are
Don leat guhkás mátkkoštan
Don leat mojiin boahtán
Dál leat beassan luovus
Mo leat beassan luovus?
Dál leat beassan luovus
Mo leat beassan luovus?

Duoddara badjel johtán
Jogaid ja jávrriid rasttildan
Dál mun lahkonan
Dál mun lahkonan
Dál mun lahkonan
Dál mun lahkonan

Du lusa du lusa

Letne čappa mátkkis
Joavdan čappa báikái
Dáppe deaivvadeimme
Dáppe deaivvadeimme

Dál mun gávnnan fas
Dál mun gávnnan fas

Du lusa du lusa

You have travelled long
You came with a smile
You are free
How did you get free?

Over the tundra
Over rivers and lakes
I am getting closer
I am getting closer

To where you are
To where you are

We are on a beautiful trip
Arriving to a beautiful place
Here we met
Here we met
Now I find
Now I find

To where you are
To where you are

Closer and closer to something else
Longer and longer away from hopelessness

Take me with you
Take me with you

Deeper and deeper into beautifulness
Further and further outside the box

Take me with you
Take me with you
Take me with you

It gets colder
It gets darker
More work to do

Take me with you
Take me with you
Take me with you

See you by the river, see you
See you by the river, see you

See you by the fire, see you

See you at the airport, see you
See you at the airport, see you

See you in the city noise, see you
See you in the city noise, see you

See you under the clouds, see you
See you under the clouds, see you

See you after the psalms, see you

Track Name: Soardde Mu / Hurt Me
Jáddat dan maŋimus dolaža

Ovdal go manat
Vai in dárbbaš šat áibbašit

Soardde mu eambbo

Cuvke mu váimmu
Mun ain doaivvun don leat mu

Doalvvo oadjebasvuođa

Vai ii leat šat eambbo maid massit
Doalvvo dan maŋimus jurdaga
Vai vajálduhtán
Vai orru aht ii goassige leamaš

Mus lea ain doaivu
Gierddan eambbo garra sániid
Gierddan eambbo garra sániid
Mus lea doaivu

Put out the last fire
Before you go
So I won’t feel your warmth anymore
Turn off the last light
Before you go
So I can’t see you anymore
Kill all the dreams
Before you go
So I don’t have to cry anymore
Kill all the memories
Before you go
So I don’t have to long for them

Hurt me more
I still don’t believe you
Break my heart
I still think you are mine

Take away all the trust
And the happiness that came with it
So I don’t have any more to loose
Take away the last thought
So I don’t remember
And it will seem like it never happened

Hurt me more
I still don’t believe you
Break my heart
I still think you are mine

I still have hope
I can handle more harsh words
I can handle more harsh words
I still have hope

Hurt me more
I still don’t believe you
Break my heart
I still think you are mine
Track Name: Jorri Čalmmit / Twirling Eyes
Jorri čalmmit čuvvot
mu maiddái fáipot ja
gopmána su siste
ja čuovvola
gii bat suoládii su golli nu árrat iđđedis
Litna bealde goruda eai beasa guoskat dego
čurrohat ja goike suoidni
Čuvvot mu ja fáipot

Mii ipmašiid lean nu guolgan
ja varran dal ges go
ii lean dat beana
mii bođii soađis
Guoktilašvuohta ii heive buohkaide
Dušše sidjiide geat eai leat eatnamis ja
Sis leat earálagan dovddut go dus

Ii leat vejolaš vajáldahttit
Vásit ja jus don
It muitte de sii muitet
Dat lea das agibeaivve
Ja buorre lea dat vai gearggat don ge
Guovdo joga šattai muorra,
orui boastut muhto nu šattai.
Nu lei dat sáhka

Jorri čalmmit, jorri čalmmit čuvvot mu
Gonagas ii bisset daid
Gearggus dahje ii
Sii bohtet fáhkkestaga čihkosis

Twirling eyes follow me and wave without control
and fall inside me
and follow
who stole the gold so early in the morning?
On the soft side of the body is no one allowed to touch
Like flies and dry grass
They follow me and wave without control

Wonder what is that hairy
and full of blood now again
since it wasn’t that dog
that came from the war
being two faced doesn’t fit everyone
Only those who are not on earth
And they have other kinds of feelings than you

It’s not possible to forget
Just experience
and if you don’t remember then they will remember
It will be there for ever
And that is good, so you will finish as well
A tree grew up from the river
It seemed wrong, but it happened so
That’s the way it went

Twirling eyes, twirling eyes follow me
The king can’t stop them
Ready or not
They will come suddenly from their hiding place
