Ulla Pirttijärvi


The Sami singer specialises in the throaty singing of her people in Northern Scandinavia, which is related to yodelling. The Finn is committed to the preservation of the Sami culture and was awarded a national cultural prize for her work.

Albin Paulus

Bagpipes & Jew's Harp

Classical clarinettist, Jew’s harp virtuoso, sought-after bagpipe player and innovative yodeller and overtone singer: the Viennese multi-instrumentalist is a specialist for the unusual and exciting.


Sami Joik and Bagpipe

The Enlightenment philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau reacted to the superficiality of society by advocating a “return to nature”. He maintained that, in their primitive state, people were nearer to the truth than they were in the webs of intrigue of power-hungry society. This is easy to imagine when Ulla Pirttijärvi sings Sami joik and when Albin Paulus turns to nature for his instruments: the skin for his bagpipes, his elderberry whistles and his angelica wood. As “Galan in the Garden”, he combines the artificial naturalness of Rococo with the sustainability of today.
