Sofia Jannok, born and raised in Sapmi, is a twice-Grammy-nominated artist from Sweden. Her music contains beats, power yoiks, pop tunes and innovative vastness. Her voice carries dynamic landscapes and no matter whether the lyrics are in English, Swedish, or Sami Sofia Jannok embraces each sounds with every album and distinctly reveals her message through music.
“Here borders are to be crossed
Here opposites come together, equally worthy of existing.
Here the contrast rises, showing the beauty.
Here the conflicts begin, if I fight the divisions.
Here the yearning finds peace, with one foot on either side.
Here the storm gets its power.
I am this storm, born and raised on the tree line. The emotions, reflections, and debates I come across are found on, about and because of the tree line.
I am the snow grouse hard to trace, spreading my wings over the border with no effort at all. The hunter shoots me down again and again – still I am here. We all are.
I am the snow lioness, fighting the norm that wants to erase my everything and create only one landscape, in a world where there are multiple.
I am the power yoik in the front line of nature protecting herself for future generations.
To all my indigenous relatives around our mother – may we never be silent.
I am the crooked birch tree, adapting to the climate by my stubborn love to life at the edge of the tundra.
For the unbreakable sinews of kin, I continue to sing.
For my future sisters, I raise my voice to the misters.
Kings and queens, cities and tress, mountains and seas.
All that is in between.
This is my land.
