Bio

Inga Juuso is known for her raw, direct presence and enthralling voice. She is one of Scandinavia’s leading yoikers and uses a self-taught traditional technique that has made her a sought-after artist the world over. Today she works as a regional yoiker in the Northern Norwegian county of Troms, and is unique in being the only full-time professional yoiker in the world. She has collaborated on several CD recordings and is also an experienced actor. ‘Yoik doesn’t only belong on mountain tops and in exotic places’, Inga states, and through her entire career, she has striven to develop and renew Sami musical tradition by experimenting with other musical genres.

Steinar Raknes is one of Norway’s foremost jazz bassists and songwriters. With his fearless and explosive playing style, he is often compared with the legendary bassist and songwriter Charles Mingus. Many know Raknes through his work as composer and musician in the award-winning jazz trio Urban Connection, and for collaborations with artists such as Chick Corea, Michael Brecker, Steve Grossman and Per Texas Johansson. After completing a Master of Arts (music) degree in jazz at NTNU in 2001, he has collaborated in a number of ensembles, including The Core, the Ola Kvernberg Trio and the Kirsti Huke Quartet. ‘Steinar has a unique ability to make other people shine’, Ola Kvernberg has said. In Skaidi, Steinar once again proves this to be true.
