Torgeir Vassvik is a Sami artist from Finnmark, Norway’s northernmost tip, whose shamanistic vocal and percussion rituals draw their strength and profundity from the extreme polar climate and landscape. Combining traditional Nordic ‘joik’ and resonant throat singing, he updates mystic musical techniques for the 21st century.
