Echoes of Sámi tradition encounter the present moment and form a colourful combination in the music of Gájanas. One can also hear a dialog between the traditional and modern Sámi music. In addition it emphasizes the strong nature connection of the Sámi people. Different genres combine and create something new and unique.
