Torgeir Vassvik is a Sami musician and composer. A keeper as well as an reneever in the Sami tradition and performing arts. An artist we are happy to invite up on our stage again and for sure not for the last time. Joik, drums and traditional instruments find new paths in Vassvik’s limitless creations. Vassvik has always had a strong desire to express his inner self and give voice to the things around him. His music is a mirror of the landscapes and nature he grew up with and lives with, the coastal country, the sea, the light of the polar sun, the wind and the storms, the abundance of summer and the barrenness of winter. Everything takes shape in Vassvik’s magical soundscape.
