Elin Kaaven - The arctic fairy Elin Kåven takes you on a journey to Sapmi, the land where the folklore spirits and mysticism are a part of everyday life. She belongs to the Sami people which are the nomad people north of the arctic circle. Being the grand-granddaughter of the most famous shaman in the icy tundra of Sapmi, she may have inherited some of his magical gifts. At the same time she is fascinated by other cultures.

Elin Kaaven - The arctic fairy Elin Kåven takes you on a journey to Sapmi, the land where the folklore spirits and mysticism are a part of everyday life. She belongs to the Sami people which are the nomad people north of the arctic circle. Being the grand-granddaughter of the most famous shaman in the icy tundra of Sapmi, she may have inherited some of his magical gifts. At the same time she is fascinated by other cultures.

Something she expresses in her dancing. Like an arctic fairy Elin Kåven radiates with beauty and secrecy, as she is known for integrating dance in her stage performances and opens a new dimension to her music. Since her first EP was released in 2005, she has given a number of performances in Scandinavia, where she has participated in Sami Song contests and the Liet Lavlut European Song Contest for Minority Languages. With her debut album “Jikŋon musihkka-Frozen music” (2009), she will lure you to the open landscapes of the tundra, the cold north where love for nature is strong. This album is meditative, moving towards a more mystical and modern sound with the presence of traditional elements from the Sami yoik.

With her own written lyrics in Sami language she opens a musical landscape mixing pop, world, jazz and elements from traditional Sami music. Intense and quiet vocal with a suggestive music rich in detail gives a quiet, open and flowing expression. This gave her good reviews in the Norwegian press. She is now planning a second album, and 17th of February 2011 the single “Lihkku Niehkku” was released at her concert at by:Larm in Oslo. This song is about waking up from the dwelling age of “Jikŋon musihkka-Frozen music”, following your heart and allowing you to explore and be blissful.
