The situations of the past seem both comforting and deeply terrifying at times, and the great contrasts of our history and heritage have awakened an exploration within Hildás own musical pathway. The joik, something so timeless, soft and grounded can at the same time present us with such definite and powerful characteristics, resonating forcefully even within the confines of this modern, human-made world.

This concert explores joik through a variety of earthy, etheral, buzzing, growling and pealing soundscapes. A diverse musical ensemble takes us forwards and backwards between worlds both musical and cultural. An inquiry into the past as it re-emerges into the present, informing us about who and what we are, where we have come from, and where we are headed. Almost like a form of time travel.
