Ailloš: Bridging Cultures with Yoik
Written by daybreak on September 14, 2023
Ailloš, also known as Iŋgor Ántte Áilu Gaup, is set to deliver a one-of-a-kind musical experience this weekend at Daybreak Star Radio.
Yoik: A Unique Tradition
Yoik, the traditional Sámi form of singing, is at the heart of Ailloš’ artistry. With a profound connection to nature and all living beings, Ailloš has been yoiking for many moons.
Traditional and Contemporary Blend
During the show, Ailloš will showcase a captivating blend of both traditional and contemporary yoiks. These yoiks have evolved, incorporating elements from various musical genres as yoik gained popularity in world and folk music in the late 20th century.
What sets this event apart is the collaboration between Ailloš and Pacific Northwest musicians, breaking down geographical and cultural barriers. This unique meeting of yoik with Indigenous music of the Pacific Northwest and European classical music promises a culturally rich and harmonious experience.
Ailloš’ upcoming performance is not to be missed, offering a glimpse into the world of yoik and the diverse musical influences that have shaped it.
