According to the Mythologies and Religions Dictionary edited by Yves Bonnefoy, "Freya" is, in the Germanic and Scandinavian mythology, the goddess of Vana, or rather belonging to the Vana group of gods. She is the hugest priestess of the supreme magic art called Seidr and this obscure distich makes her tutelary goddess of the dead. Freyia made her interest in mythologies and religions the real core in her life, she is graduated at the University of Foreign Languages and Literatures, specifically in Swedish and English Languages and Literatures with a final thesis titled "The Feminine Element in the Scandinavian Mythology" and enriched with several researches about the Living Theatre of Julian Beck and Judith Malina that will come up in the development of her artistic personality. Freyia's music path begins when she was 3 years old, exactly when she gets from her grandfather, merchant ships sailor, a harmonica that he used for many years. At ten she gets a guitar and starts to feel the “impetus” to express herself through the voice and then through two other instruments like harmonica and electric violin. Singing represents for her a suspension of the material ego, a stream of consciousness, a sort of shamanist ekstasis, the voice is for her the soul fulcrum. She sings in several bands, street musician in Boston (USA), she composes original songs for her band made up of two acoustic guitars, a harmonica and two violins. Her music influences swing among the echoes of Scandinavian and Lappish folk tradition, based on the cycle of seasons, up to the latest music expression of the same themes through a more extreme and melancholic feeling: the Scandinavian gothic music. The climax of her artistic education was the theoretical and practical study of the Lappish singing and of its main forms: Kulning and Joik. Techniques that Freyia learned in the north of Sweden, outside Kiruna, living and touching the deepness of Sami roots with her Sami friend and teacher Lena Rosenberg. The Vibrato vocal technique, peculiar to Lapp singing, is used in the interpretation of her first single Mist (Virgin/Emi) released in 14 countries all over the world, played by BBC Radio1 in UK and remixed by a cool artist such as Cicada (Nebula Records/EMI). Then comes her second single Rain of Time and Massive (Universal). Freyia has now released 3 singles (SeawardMusic) from her upcoming album “BLOKULLA”.
