    "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)
