ISÁK has been a hype in Sápmi music for a long time, renowned for its energetic live shows and intense presence
Since their debut in 2017 the trio has experienced an overwhelming response in Norway, and now the «sensation from Sápmi» is finally ready to take on the rest of the world.
ISÁK is considered to be a natural successor after Mari Boine, who is known for developing yoik and modernising Sami music for decades. With a new and exciting fusion of traditional yoik, urban synths and a text universe that combines both English and Sami, ISÁK continues to push the limits of Sami music.
ISÁK has been described as “the hottest name in Sápmi music” by the influential folk festival Riddu Riddu. They were recently named winner of “NRK Urbi” by a jury consisting of music director Mats Borch Bugge (NRK P3) and Eirik Havelin from NRK Urørt (New music of the week) among others. The band also won «Best New Music” during the Sami Music Awards in 2018.
