Mari Boine


Everyone’s tags

More tags


Mari Boine is a musician from Norway known for having added and to the “yoiks”(Sami traditional music) of her native people. Boine (born 8 November 1956 in Finnmark, Norway) grew up amid the Laestadian Christian movement as well as amidst discrimination against her people. She was asked to perform at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, but refused because she perceived the invitation as an attempt to bring a token minority to the ceremonies. Gula Gula (1989, Real World) was her breakthrough release, and she has continued to record popular albums.

    when will the rock and jazz tags be popular? the people who's tagging obviously haven't heard sámi folk music. Mari boine's music only contains elements of the sámi folk music, and to say it's sámi folk music would almost be like saying a rock song is folk music just because you play a sitar in it.

    Błagam, proszę o występ w Polsce, z wielką fetą i fajerwerkami dla ubogich (!), nie chcę płacić wiele za coś co powinno być dostępne przy każdym ognisku obok ciepła stadnego, piękno jest przecież w nas, jest na wyciągnięcie ręki, dlaczego więc tak bardzo napierdalamy na innych.
