“Joiku” is unique form of music for cultural expression for the Sami people. It is almost exclusively vocal and it has many social functions: it can serve as a tool for sharing memories, for community building (both within a family and within society as a whole), for personal self-expression, to calm the reindeer or frighten the wolves, or even to transport one between worlds.
