CD Reviews

Haunting melodies, beautifully sung, tug at the soul
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mary Boine Persen is a shaman, and some of the songs on this album will just about pull you out of your body in a state of heart ecstasy. You may likely waltz to the haunting lullabies for days. There are a few songs which are very lively. 'Enjoyable enough, but I prefer the softer, more beautiful cuts. When played in a group doing meditative kinds of work, everyone wants to know what the music is."
A trip through primal lands.

"Mari Boine brings the ancient to life in this CD of primal ballads, chants, and sometimes soft, sometimes strikingly harsh vocals. It starts off with the deep chanting of "Gula Gula", a great introduction to this path through the wilderness of the north. After this, several softer tracks blare through the fog, with Mari's voice going from the most intimate notes to a shrill cry from deep within her throat. The seventh track "Oppskrift for Herrefolk" is a suprisingly upbeat tune, and one of my favorites. While the songs are in Mari's native Saami, the lyrics are printed in English, along with a short description of Mari's career. This is a beautiful work, filled to the brim with ancient tradition in a modern setting, of untouched beauty."

"It is amazing how Joik tradition has evolved. The traditional style of no real beginning or ending of their particular style and the fact that Joik is different every time a "song" is "sung" brings you back to a time of a REAL beginning, of oral tradition and everyday life as it is. These days are sad because there is no real togetherness like the Sami people had . I envy them for their hard livelyhood and REAL family life!"
