"Uvjamuohta / Powder Snow" - Solju


Spring, the favorite time in Sápmi, when your spirits are enlivened by the sunrays. The mountain birches and the whole environment shine silvery.

The yoiks in this album have their origin in one particular spring when the two of us herded together. It was special to follow nature’s variation. To find one’s way to the herd through snowstorms in the evening and to enjoy those balmy days with fair
weather. That was when new yoiks came about.
