Indigenous yoik & accordion

VILDÁ is an original blend of indigenous Sámi yoiks, grooving rhythms and improvisation – with girly charm. Inspiration has been sought from Sámi people’s strong connection to nature, present-day pop as well as the Finnish folk tradition. The result is a unique dialogue that takes the listener to a fascinating journey to the Sámi land – the vast landscapes under the arctic hills and frosty winds.

VILDÁs debut album Vildaluodda – Wildprint, released in April 2019 by Bafe’s Factory, has already gained great reviews internationally. The band has performed on various occasions from concerts to film screenings and also appeared internationally, among others the world’s largest accordion festival Carrefour Mondial de l’Accordéon Festival in Canada and at Nordic Folk Alliance in Gothenburg. This year the band’s international tours will head for Spain, Bulgaria, France and Canada.
