Katarina Barruk playing first time in Sámi Easter Festival

Katarina Barruk is known as one of Sápmi’s most talented live artists. Barruk sings in one of her mother tongues, Ume Sámi language. The language is on UNESCO's red list of critically endangered languages, but many Umesámis are taking the language back.

Barruk's unique, distinctive voice, in combination with a steadfast presence on stage creates a space of vulnerability and strength that is unlike anything else. She delivers a fierce, yet deeply down-to-earth, mix of pop music, traditional yoik and improvisational elements.

We look forward to experience Katarina Barruk in Báktehárji this Easter!
