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.
