KAJSA BALTO

Kajsa Balto is born and raised in Oslo, a background that has defined her as an artist facing Sami traditional music. When Kajsa Balto released her first single "Vári Alde" in 2016, she quickly made her mark with her Sami and yoik-inspired version of the old Norwgian folk song "Oppå fjellet". 

A musical process based on her own identity led to the release of her first album "Sámi sohka" in 2017. The result was new arrangements of yoiks and folk songs, where she sang in both Northern-Sami and Norwegian language.

Kajsa is currently working on new material for her second album. She collects yoiks from within her own family, and writes new music based on traditions from Kárásjohka where her father comes from. Her second album "Buot eallá" will be released in 2020.

LYRICS 

MIN MÁTTUID RÁVVAGAT / VÅRE FORFEDRES RÅD


Muitte boahtevaš buolvvaid / Husk kommende slekter

Leage buorre olmmožin / Vær et godt menneske

Juogat luonddu láhjiid / Del på naturens gaver

Vánddar meahcis giitevašvuođain / Vandre med takknemlighet i naturen


Várut luottahuhttimis máddagiid /Vær varsom så du ikke forårsaker at bestander blir sporløse

Várut botkkemis eallin rávnnjiid /Vær varsom så du ikke kutter livets strømninger

Gula biekkaid váidaleame / Hør på stormens klaging
Gula máttuid jiena / Hør forfedrenes stemme

Min maŋimušbuiga meahcci / Vår siste uberørte villmark

Min maŋimuš dearvvas vuona / Vår siste friske, rene fjord

Bealuštehkot dáid / Forsvar dem

gaccaid bániid! / med nebb og klør!


Sánit: Haldis Balto / Tekst: Haldis Balto
