Biography

VILDÁ

VILDÁ is an original blend of mystical joiks, grooving rhythms and improvisation. Inspiration has been sought from Samí people’s strong connection to nature, Nordic folk music and present-day popular music. The result is a unique soundscape that takes the listener to a fascinating journey to the Sámi land, the wild and vast landscapes under the arctic hills and frosty winds – with a girly charm.

VILDÁ is one of the nominees at Music Moves Europe Talent Awards 2021! Vote for VILDÁ for Public Choice via this link.
