KATARINA BARRUK.

Katarina Barruk is known as one of Sábmie’s most talented live artists. She is raised in Lusspie (Storuman) and Gajhrege (Gardfjäll), but is currently based in Ubmeje (Umeå). Barruk's unique, distinctive voice, in combination with a steadfast presence on stage creates a space of vulnerability and strength that is unlike anything else. She delivers a fierce, yet deeply down-to-earth, mix of pop music, traditional yoik and improvisational elements.

 

Her powerful and unmistakably clear voice has built a captive audience over the years. The last decade Barruk has toured through Europe, giving highly appreciated concerts. In 2020 she received one of the most eligible writer and composer prizes in Sweden - “SKAPs Kulturbärarpris”.

 

 

 

 

 

Barruk sings in one of her mother tongues, Ume Sámi language. The language is on UNESCO's red list of critically endangered languages, but many Umesámis are taking the language back.

When I perform, I see inner images of places, people and events. I try to take the audience with me to those places and to my emotional state.

 

I want my music to bring freedom, a breathing space for people to rest in what it is like to be human.

Doing music in Ume Sámi is a way of inviting my friends and the audience into my universe, where Ume Sámi is norm, highly topical, and alive.
