Ulla Pirttijärvi’s new lineup Áššu relies on traditional yoik but serves it to the audiences through new arrangements. Pirttijärvi yoiks about her relatives, loved ones and her home villages of Utsjoki and Angeli. Olav Torget and Harald Skullerud from Norway complement her vocals with their stringed and percussion instruments.
