VILDÁ: Performance and Workshop
November 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us for a unique and charming acoustic performance followed by a workshop by the Indigenous group, Vilda.
An original blend of Indigenous Sami yoiks, groovy rhythms, and improvisation inspired by the Sami people’s strong connection to nature, present-day pop as well as Finnish folk tradition. Group members Hildá Länsman and Viivi Maria Saarenkylä will take guests on a fascinating journey to the Sami land – the vast landscapes under the arctic hills and frosty winds. Afterward, guests will have the opportunity to discuss the rooted tradition of Sámi joik from the Northernmost part of Europe. Sharing thoughts about sustainable cultural collaboration and exchange between indigenous and western majority culture.
VILDÁs debut album Vildaluodda – Wildprint has already gained great reviews internationally. The band has performed on various occasions from concerts to film screenings and appeared on festival stages in Canada, Spain, France, and Sweden. November tour in Canada takes VILDÁ to Victoria, Vancouver, Toronto, and Montréal.
