    "The album «Máizan-Thaw» shows my sami background from a new side, where the traditional, mythical and modern are mixed. Through this album my inner life as a sami girl in the city has manifested. The roots and longing for the nature is present, but at the same time I am drawn towards the urban. The ice i my debutalbum "Jiknon musihkka-Frozen music" (2009) is melting, and what is under the ice is exposed."-Elin Kåven


    Máizan (m'a:jtsa:n) Máizat bivaldit, liehmudit, loikat, suddat. Become less cold, get milder. To become warm enough for snow and ice to melt. Thaw (thô)

Track Name: Ulda Nikta / Ulda Allures
Lasta-arvi vuovttain
Golle čáhci čalmmiin
Gávttiin čiŋaduvvon
riggodagain giktá

Bákti gohčču namain
Luđiin fille fárrui
geamadagas dánsut
liegga geasseija
Uldá niktá

Gaskaija riemut
geasis ii leat loahppa
Jus seibbiid it leat fuobmán
silba ii šat gáju
Uldá niktá

-

Rain of leaves in the hair
water of gold in the eyes
Dressed in gákti (sami dress)
Tempting with richness

The mountain calls your name
luring you with yoik
to dance in the haze
warm summernights
Uldá allures

Midsummernight feast
summer has no end
if you haven´t noticed the tail
silver will not save you
Uldá allures
Track Name: Lihkku Niehku / Dream of Fortune
Lihkku ii boađe okto
Niehku ealáska
Albmái ii loktan
Losses gálvvuin

Lihkku Niehku –Niehku Lihkku

Váibmui gullá albmi
Áibmu viiddida
Váibmui áibmu – Áibmu váibmui

Sávvat oažžu álo
Jurdda dahká olu
Vuordit agibeaivve
Eallát go rievddat
Vuordit eallát- eallát vuordit

-

Fortune doesn´t come alone
Dreams are given life
You won´t reach the sky
with a heavy load
Dream of fortune

To the heart belongs the sky
Air creates space
Air to the heart

There is always hope
Thoughts do the work
we forever wait
we start living when we change
We wait for life
Track Name: Vaimmu Čuovga / Heartlight
Deattaša mu geahppáid
Njuikkoda mu varas
Vuojada mu čoavjjis

Huikkaša mu siste
sakŋida ja sakŋit
máilbmi nu gehppon

Váimmu čuovga

Čalmmiiide lea báhkka
jurdagiidda darvánan
seahkana buot visot

Váimmu čuovga

Jorada mu oaivvis
čerggiidedje juolggit
njálggamáistu njálmmis

Váimmu čuovga

Deattaša mu geahppáid
Njuikkoda mu varas
Vuojada mu čoavjjis

Pressure on my lungs
bouncing in my blood
swimming in my belly

Screaming inside
itching and itching
world is getting lighter

Heartlight

Hot on my eyes
stuck in my thoughts
stirring everything

Heartlight

Circeling in my head
no feeling in my legs
good taste in my mouth

Heartlight

Pressure on my lungs
bouncing in my blood
swimming in my belly
Track Name: Gatnjalat Váimmus / Tears From the Heart
Gatnjalat váimmus
Juohke ovttas muitalus
Ráhkisvuođa muitalus
Ganjal juohke hávvái go ráhkisteimme

Oainnán daid čalmmiin
Geahčan dego don dat livččet
Gatnjalat váimmus
bohtet seamma sajis go don

Gatnjalat váimmus
Juohke okta oassi
Oassi ráhkisvuođas
Ganjal juohke hávvái go filtiime

Eai dat bisán
Ovdal váibmu guorrana
Gosa don manat
Mu váibmu čuovvola

-

Tears from the heart
each of them tell a story
a story of love
a tear for each time we loved

I see them in my eyes
look at them like they are you
the tears from the heart
where you are too

Tears from the heart
each of them a piece
a piece of love
a tear for each time we failed

They won’t stop pouring
until my heart is empty
cause where you go
my heart will follow
Track Name: Jus Mieđihat / If You Agree
Mu váibmu lea rahkadan gova dus
Duohkandahkko jus mieđihat
Mu dovddut leat hoigan buot eará eret
earret du
Mu niegut leat huksen du perfektan
Duohtandahkko jus mieđihat
Seamma jurdda, seamma duohtavuohta
Lea munno, de

dat šaddá duohtan jus boađát
dat šaddá duohtan jus mieđihat
Agibeaivi ii álgge ovdal don leat dás
Mu ruoktu balvvaid bajábealde
Guoskkastagas loktanan
Mu jurdda fievrrida mu ruoktot
Váilot don vai šaddá munno
Ii šatta duohtan jus it guoskka
Ii šatta duohtan albma áimmus
Agibeavi ii álgge ovdal don leat dás
Dahke duohtan
dat šaddá duohtan go don boađát
dat šaddá duohtan go mieđihat
Agibeaivi ii álgge ovdal don leat dás

My heart has made a picture of you
it becomes true if you agree
My feelings have pushed everything else aside
except you
My dreams have built you perfectly
it becomes true if you agree
same thoughts, same truth
it is ours, and
It becomes true if you come
It becomes true if you agree
Forever doesn´t begin before you arrive

My home is over the clouds
your touch makes me ellavate
My thoughts will bring me home
you are missing to make it ours
It doesn´t become true if you don´t touch
It doesn´t become true in the real world
Forever doesn´t begin before you arrive

We make the truth
It becomes true when you come
It becomes true when you agree
Forever doesn´t begin before you arrive
Track Name: Ija Árdna / Night Treasure
Ija árdna
Arva álo

Oaččun dan maid darbbašan
dan maid mun siđan
Buot lea nu mo dat galgá leat
dá lea dat riekta

-

Night treasure
Always ready

I get what I need
what I want
Everything is how it is supposed to be
this is the right thing
Track Name: Njielasattu / Quicksand
Gos bođii diet luohti maid munnje juiget
Gos bođii diet luohti maid munnje bidjet
Silbajohka mii čilge buot
Mo gávdnet dien balvva maid munnje vižžet
Litna vielgat go girdilin

Njielasáttu

Gos iđii diet dolla maid munnje čájehit
Šerres rukses go mannen galmmas

Njielasáttu

Lean njiellasan sáddui
Dieđán lean boahtán riekta go don munnje
sávat bures boahtima njielasáddui

-

Where did the yoik you yoiked to me come from
Where did the yoik you gave me come from
Silver river explains it all
How did you find that cloud you brought me
Soft white when I soar

Quicksand

Where did the fire you showed me come from
Bright red when I swoon

Quicksand

I am stuck in quicksand
I know I have come to the right place
because you welcome me into quicksand
Track Name: Čuovo Čuovgga / Follow the Light
Vuoiŋŋa jaskesvuođa
vuoiŋŋa lieggasa
fanat ráfálaš jienain

Divtte biekka doalvut
suovva buhtista
čalmmiin deaivá sielu

Čuovo čuovgga
čuovo čuovgga gosa manaš
čuovo čuovgga

-

Breathe the quietness
Breathe warmth
stretch with peaceful sound

Let the wind take away
the smoke cleanses
through your eyes it hits your soul

Follow the light
Follow the light wherever it goes
Follow the light
Track Name: Čábbáseamos Báiki / Beautiful Place
Ráfálaččat čohkkán dás
Dolla buollá
Muorat skeikot hilaid sis
suovva dánsu

Jávri jaskat mu speajal
Biegga šurrá
Jokŋalasttat mu seaŋga
Rássi čikŋan
Čábbáseamos báiki

Násttit geaidnočuovggaid sajis
Lottit šláttardit
Suovva dolas spiide čalmmiin
iige eksosa
Čábbáseamos báiki

Geahča mo bahčavuohta jávká čázis
Oainnát mo jávká áimmus
Dán ilmmis ii ceavzze bahá

Almmi balvvain muitalus
dego sátta
Bálggis asfáltta haga
Ná lea láhččon
Čábbáseamos báikkis

-

Peacefully I sit here
Fire is burning
Wood is crackling in the embers
Smoke is dancing

A still lake is my mirror
The wind is howling
Lingonberry heathers my bed
Flowers my decor
The most beautiful place

Stars in the place of street-lamps
Birds are gossiping
Smoke from the fire burns the eyes
instead of exhaust
The most beautiful place

Look how everything foul dissapears in the water
look how it dissapears in the air
In this world nothing bad survives

Clouds in the sky tell a story
like a program
Path without asphalt
This is how it is
in the most beatiful place
