Solju is formed by Ulla Pirttijärvi and her daughter Hildá Länsman, who combine their heritage of northern Sámi language and traditional yoik, with a desire for new and innovative music. Solju provides a dialogue of traditional and modern Sámi culture. Solju is proud of their indigenous roots and want to show it to the world; Sámi culture and identity lie at the heart of the music, reflecting mythology and aspects of the traditional lifestyles of their homeland. The listener is taken to the far north of Europe: Sápmi.
Solju soundscape ranges from the expansive wilderness of the tundra to the most intimate lávvu fireplace. The music can be described as vivacious, colourful, earthy, ethereal, and genuine.
Solju’s debut album Ođđa Áigodat (2018, Bafe’s Factory) was produced by Samuli Laiho and Teho Majamäki, mixed by Riku Mattila and featured by Czech National Symphony Orchestra.
New album Uvjamuohta (Powder Snow) has been released 9.9.2022 by Bafe’s Factory.
