Line-Up (live):
Trio: Marja Mortensson, vocals / Daniel Herskedal, tuba, bass trumpet / Jakop Janssønn - percussions

”The most memorable set was by Marja Mortensson, who took the mesmeric, chattering vocal tradition of the indigenous Sami people of Northern Europe – yoiking, as it’s known – and arranged it impressionistically for drums, bass trumpet, tuba and electronics.” The Rolling Stone Magazine

”Though Mortensson is clearly a special talent, it's the strength of the trio's chemistry that lifts this music into the realm of the sublime. A heirloom that will doubtless illuminate for generations to come.” All About Jazz

“It sounds like a prayer with a profound belief reverberating inside. Te softly dissonant minor chords brighten into major harmonies at crucial moments in the melody, like sunshine suddenly highlighting features on the landscape. It’s extraordinarily beautiful.” Songlines Magazine
