ARA is the next big thing in Sapmi. New paths for Jojk as a means of expression, as an art form.
Timeless, uncompromising Sami music with a modern feel, from the enormous tundra of the north directly to our inner ear.
ARA has been compared to both Marie Boine and Sigur Ros.

Biography

The story starts here.
Ancient traditions, deeply rooted harmonies and meditative melodies.

Above the polar circle, deep inside the innermost, is where the first meeting took place. The start of what 3 years later would become a completion of the circle. O is the circle, life, a perfect symbol, the first album of this project. ÁRA; the parts that form the circle. The will, the music, the friendship and the harmony.

The debut album “O” is a united will and vision to find new paths for Jojk as a means of expression, as an art form. Simon Issát Marainen together with his highly merited musicians create timeless and uncompromising Sami music from the enormous tundra of the north directly to our inner ear.

“O” gives us 12 tracks of tradition and modernity.
Life and Death.
Sound and Silence.
Love and Sorrow.
