Third volume of six presenting field recordings of Sámi joik, made in spring 1914 in the area of Vapsten, Umbyn, Ranbyn and Vilhelmina.

In the fall of 1912, musicologist, stationmaster, artist and violin maker Karl Tirén (1869-1955) was offered the loan of a phonograph and pertaining wax cylinders from the Swedish Museum of Natural History’s ethnographic department, with the instruction of recording Sámi traditional singing (joik), storytelling and other verbal traditions. The apparatus itself was among the marvels of the modern age, and had been purchased in Berlin just a few years prior. Acquiring Sámi objects for the museum’s collection was also part of the ethnographic department’s mission.
