MIDNIGHT CONCERT: Mari Boine
Mari Boine creates music connecting sámi folk music and world music, rock and jazz, and she delivers breathtakingly stunning live performances.
The norwegian world musician Mari Boine is coming to Kongsberg Jazzfestival and will play a midnight concert at Kongsberg Church. This time we’ll have the pleasure of experiencing her music played by a trio of skilled musicians. Throughout the years, Mari Boine has received several prices and acknowledgements, amongst others the Spellemann and the Sami Councils honorary prices, an honorary doctorate. She has also been knighted.
Since her debut over 30 years ago, she has brought new life to the traditional singing technique “joik” and also modernized the samic music through her strong compositions and interpretations.
