It is beautiful. Thank you and Sean for featuring it.
Yes. Sean pointed it out first
Ha, lovely you felt inspired to post this.
Lovely! Ta, John.Hugs!
Beautiful, but actually not Norwegian but Sami (or Lapp). The Sami is an ethnic group living in the north of Norway, Sweden and Finland.
Thank you for that , we sing a reindeer clapping song in choir from the Lapp community
Thanks for sharing, John! And thanks to niinpä niin for the clarification. The Sami have beautiful traditional music!
A lovely boost to my Sunday morning.
Nice to have you back deArheart x
It is so good to see you dear Pat!
Lovely, and I would never have guessed its Scandinavian origin...sounds how I'd imagine native American music to be!
Yes , me too
They make good crime thrillers too.
I’ve just started watching The Bridge
I've just googled a lovely animated version too and someone mentions it being of Venezuelan origin x
I felt I heard American Indians
Yes I did John.Off on a slight tangent I know but my reiki healer said he was a shamen-apparently it came to him in a dream.Also a police woman dealt with "anti social"issues I was having with a neighbour-"we will try native Indian techniques" she said( she had spied my book collection)sadly the neigbour was having "none ofit"and continued to chuck crap x
That is gobsmacking beautiful. So... I know this is her translation... is it a common folk tune? As in public domain? Or did she write it... as in, she owns the copyright to the song? Curious.
I need to do more research on it, the song is about a yellow bird
Mari Boine's parents were both Sami, now a recognized minority in Norway as are the Roma (gypsies), Jews, and Forest Finns. My great-grandfather belonged to that last group. They all have had to deal with discrimination.
baby boomers are going to get abused and treated like garbage in the retirement homes. Maybe you boomers shouldn't have been so selfish and arrogant and greedy. Literally everyone hates baby boomers now. Enjoy those retirement homes, and good luck, boomers!
The song is by Mari Boine / Svein Schultz / Georg Buljo / Rauni Magga Lukkari.
Is it based on a traditional song or is it totally original
In case you got a bit interested in Sami music, here is the English Wikipedia entry for Joik.
Uff! If you click on Joik, you will get there.
Will do, I adored my first venture into this music
I like the folk song.
It’s lovely isn’t it
The music feels so haunting love the sound I have found quite a few songs for the first time on your daily
