Event Description

VILDÁ is an original blend of indigenous Sámi yoiks, grooving rhythms and improvisation. Inspiration has been sought from Sámi people’s strong connection to nature, present-day pop as well as the Finnish folk tradition. The result is a unique dialogue that takes the listener to a fascinating journey to the Sámi land – the vast landscapes under the arctic hills and frosty winds.

VILDÁ’s debut album Vildaluodda - Wildprint (2019, Bafe’s Factory) has gained great reviews internationally and was singled out as one of the best albums of 2019 by Songlines Magazine. In January VILDÁ was announced as a winner of the Music Moves Europe Talent Awards 2021 at the ESNS Festival in Holland.

This beautiful music is enlivened by Viivi Maria Saarenkylä, one of the most promising young Finnish accordionists who has been awarded in many renowned competitions such as Castelfidardo and Coupe Mondiale. On vocals and frame drums, Hildá Länsman proudly connects her rich culture with the band’s contemporary world music. Hildá grew up with reindeer husbandry, handicraft (duodji) and a joik (luohti) tradition which spans several generations.



A founding member of indie-folk band Fish & Bird, Adam Iredale-Gray is a versatile guitarist and fiddler with deep roots in Irish traditional music and a commitment to innovation. Fiddler and Hardanger fiddle player Elise Boeur draws from the wells of Norwegian and Swedish fiddle music, melds in fistfuls of arcane influences, and emerges with a multi-faceted sound grounded in Nordic traditions. Usually seen touring with their JUNO nominated quintet Aerialists, this is an opportunity to hear their roots come out in a duo setting, as they dig into tunes on hardingfele, guitar, and raging twin fiddles.
