I just discovered an artist, a singer and songwriter from Belgium called Milow. This song is nice -

Ha ha, yes... He seems to usually play on a smaller guitar, a regular one.

Do you know anything about sami people? They're an indigenous people who live in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. I'm one of them. We have a kind of music called joik,

I had heard of the people, but not the music. I like it though. Some of the tones remind of the music northern plains native americans. What is that song about?

Joik only describes something or someone, not with words, but how he joiks it. If it sounds fast or light, the person, animal or thing he joiks about is that way. If it goes slow, the person, animal or thing is probably slow too.

There were some words in the joik I posted, "we don't give up" and "indigenous peoples power and hopes". It's possible to joik about everything

If you had to translate "joik" to English, what would you say? Recognizing that some concepts don't translate very well. It sounds very intepretetive.

I would say exactly the same. The things he says that sounds like words are not words with a meaning. It's improvised vocal sounds instead of words. The melody tells the story, or describes the thing he joiks about.

<Wraps head around concept>

So how do you know what the joik is about? Does the singer have to announce it, or does it simply not matter, it's just whatever it feels like to the listener?

Usually he mentions something in the joik, like the name of the person the joik is dedicated to, or something about the animal he joiks about (often something cryptic about it, example "slow, big and blue with big ears", he is joiking about an elephant).

I don't understand joik so good, my family never joiked when I was a child. I'm raised in a christian family, some christian people used to think joik was to allure devils, and it was forbidden to do that. But some of my friends has their own joiks, the joik describes how the person is. It's hard for even me, as a sami, to understand joik.
