Biography

Adjágas is Sara Marielle Gaup and Lawra Somby- yoikers of Sami origin from in Sapmi (Lapland) in Norway’s far north. Both are joined by a revolving group of backing musicians. Yoiking is a integral part of the Saami of Northern Europe’s history, tradition and culture.

Sara Marielle Gaup, 21, hails from Guovdageaidnu/Kautokeino and began singing at a very early age, and it was through continued musical education at SMG she developed her unique sense of performance and perfected her singing voice. Her musical heritage has been passed down to her from her parents and generations before that. Lawra Somby, 24, was taught the great gift of yoiking from his father, Ande Somby. Lawra started performing on a variety of stages in 1997, and he has performed his music both solo as well as with his father Ande, making him a an experienced singer with a strong stage presence. Yoik is not about making stories about people, animals, situations or landscapes. Yoik is the young woman, the eagle, the grass field by the river they are recreations of a moment, a sense, a memory how the wings of a bird slowly touches your chin, the smell of a fireplace and and how it evokes memories. The yoik is about bringing memories into the light of day, making them available and inviting new people into this special world.
