ÁRA går mot strömmen
(translation will come)


Språket kan man inte kväva. Det lever i det talade ordet, i musiken och i våra  relationer. Språket finner alltid sina egna vägar genom nya möten, återkommande 
samtal, oväntade utbyten och kreativitetens obändiga kraft. När det moderna storsamhället växer trampas minoriteter allt för lätt ner av tanklös byråkrati. Styrkan och motståndet mot denna rörelse finns framförallt bland människor, i vardagen. ÁRA tar här en självklar plats, i mötet mellan samisk tradition och visionär energi. Med sin första skiva ”O” skapade ÁRA nya vägar för jojken som konstform. Ett musikaliskt möte som överbryggade kulturella gränser. 
Med sin nu aktuella andra skiva Vuoste virdái; ”Mot strömmen”, hyllar ÁRA de 
människor som stod upp för sitt ursprung och lärde sina barn det samiska språket 
trots de påtryckningar som den kulturella skambeläggningen innebar. En hyllning till 
alla de människor som då gick mot strömmen, till alla de som idag går mot 
strömmen. De som står stolta i sin tradition och historia och vågar vara sig själva. 
Tradition och förnyelse, vänskap och värme, jojk och improvisation. Det finns inget 
annat som låter riktigt som ÁRA.

  1. This blog opened my eyes, considering how a tour rental can be so creative and worth money. I had my plans to take a tour of Europe but was worried about the travel options. But now, all my worries have gone to the dustbin, and I can easily get along with this blog and suggest all for the same too.
