Never heard of her or this song - excellent on first listen!
This is the best part of listening to RP, hearing beautiful noise like this - stuff that I'd never hear any where else. "Kill ugly radio, they won't play this." - F. Zappa
1 2 many YoYo's for me.
A great example of the rich but woefully suppressed Sami culture from my native Scandinavia. Not only is the tune beautiful, but if you spend 5 minutes reading up on the background, it becomes even more meaningful. Only a generation ago, their songs and their language were more or less banned by religious powers. The accompanying Wikipedia article has some references to this.
No translation necessary for that timeless wail that comes from deep in the soul/conciouness of all semites, bothers and sisters all, despite superficial appearances, religious/political manipulation, and other craziness.

What, from Sami? That would be a surprise, though even if it did the results would be...idiosyncratic. Machine translation's moved on amazingly since its early days, but it still only gives a 'first pass' translation and finds it really difficult to deal with metaphors and multiple meanings. It's a decent tool to get the gist of texts, but I wouldn't fancy it for songs or poetry.


 
Not sure if a human or a machine did this, but here's a translation. It leaves one word untranslated, but down in the comments someone says: "Vuoi" is just an interjection, I would propose that the closest English equivalent for it might be something like "oh".

Bravo!
Very interesting Wiki read. 
Wonderful.. Count on RP to hunt up such offerings.

 So tell me, do the Sami drink as much as their southern neighbours? 


{#Lol} They'd have to go some to outdrink the Finns, right enough. Maybe they do like the Mongolians who IIRC drink fermented yak's milk. Can you ferment moose milk, I wonder? ;-)

+1 on this song, with all the negative comments, and kudos as ever to RP for bringing such music to my ears :)
See on hea.

There is a place for the puking icon and it aptly applies to this song.

The puking emoticon is a file located here: 

https://www.radioparadise.coms/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/icon_puke.gif

 

The filename is icon_puke.gif, and it's location is /tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/.

So to banish the puking icon, all you have to do is find a way to block that file in whatever web browser you use. In Opera, for example, you could right-click anywhere on a page that features the pukicon, select "Block content," then hold the shift key while you click the offending icon. Then click "Done."

Clicking the icon without holding the shift key will block the entire /tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/ directory, which would probably block all emoticons, and any other image files located in that directory.

If you use Firefox, install the Adblock Plus add-on. Navigate to a page that features the puke icon, click the stop sign with ABP in the top, right corner of your browser and select "Open blockable items" (or press Ctrl-Shift-V). Search for icon_puke.gif, right-click on it and select block. Make sure icon_puke.gif is selected in the dialog that pops up then click the Add Filter button.

I'm pretty sure Ad Block is available for Chrome. I'm not sure what kind of add-on or extension capabilities Safari or Internet Explorer have, but check with any community support forums for your browser of choice to find options for blocking offensive content.

Vile, headache-inducing monotony. 
If this song were 2 minutes long I would really like it.
This reminds me of a softer Rhea's Obsession.  Sue could sing the rings off Saturn - I'd love to hear her and the band do a duet with Mari Boine. Oh, the magic...
Up from 7 to 8.  The more I hear it, the more I like it - it sets a mood that puts me into a lovely, mellow slipstream... {#Chillpill}{#Bounce}{#Sunny}

Yes, hauntingly repetitious, unintelligible and annoyingly uneventful. "Round" mouth-sounds made over and over don't make clever lyrics.

Maybe if I had smoked a very large peace-pipe I'd have enjoyed it more...then again, it would have to be a VERY large pipe. -Another one I could never hear again and be perfectly happy.

20:43 GMT+1, perfect for a rainy edinburgh

This song is worse than having the bed spins...{#Puke}

It's 12:45pm PST and it's still too early for this track on a Monday...


Beautiful, and I love the way it builds.
Bill, brill segue from Emily Jane White - Bessie Smith. Very creative!

If you like this, then you probably like Marianne Faithfull - Broken English ... I can't say anything good about either song. Oh! Except that they aren't played much! YaY !!


When I first heard this, I thought it was Rhea's Obsession!  I like it.{#Meditate}{#Sunny}
Cool stuff, I like different provocative music
For some reason I feel the urge to go play with a yo-yo. 
I'm surprised at the low ratings on this one.  I find it rythmic, unusual and interesting.

I'm in a thatched mud-walled hut.  It is dark.  Everybody is drunk and their feet are pounding on the earthen floor in rhythm to the chanting chorus.

I give it a solid 1.
Bring on more...yes!
Pass on this one.

Hauntingly beautiful.

Norwegian soul music? My grandparents were from Norway....wait...I'm starting to feel it....
Wow is RIGHT! Just lllllllovin' the mix the past few hours, Bill. Thanks a bunch. Working on report cards; RP, keeping me company. All the best out there, everybody. Keep safe, be good to each other.

wow!


I like this track a lot, and I have found other tracks by Mari Boine that I enjoy as well.  But I can find only one translation of one of her songs into English, and that is not a song I have heard!  I am frustrated, as I need to understand the lyrics to fully enjoy a song.  Alas.
Still love this track!
This is a modern techno version of a sami song and and sami joik. The sami people lives in Russia, Finland, Sweden and Norway. They are parted it different groups and do not have the same language. Mari Boine speaks the north sami language. It is a myth that they all lives in the mountains with their reindeers. Just a few of them do. The rest of them lives as regular inhabitant of the countries in the north of Scandinavia.

Mari Boine's father was a farmer and a carpenter. She is to day professor at the University College of Nesna in Norway.
Bill's on fire this AM.  
I can't believe I haven't heard her before.  This voice arrested me in my work!  Very strong and very sweet at the same time.  More please!  Going to look her up now. 

Very good. I hear there a strong woman spirituality. Please more.
Excellent follow up to Joni...gotta get this one from Mari...fan of hers from the early days.
interesting...my first thought upon hearing this song was that she must be aboriginal north american....then i looked at her myspace, and saw the picture, and still thought that...then i read the content of her myspace page.....  very interesting...
What the hell...I really like it too.
As much as I would like to like this, I can't.  I'm fine with the music, really, but the droning vocalizing just isn't hitting me right.  Maybe it's this stomach trouble I'm having.  For now a 4.  Next time maybe higher.  I'll try.

great beat
easy to dance to
i give it a 10
daboom daboom da boom daboom daboom
I like this just fine.  I smile and tap my toe.  But if I only ever heard it thirteen more times, that would probably be quite enough.  A man's got to know his limits.
i'm surprised by the negative reaction by so many people. i think this music is a little different, but certainly not inaccessible. to me, this is really interesting and well done, and to some extent reminds me of Marianne Faithful's "Broken English". Listen to that and think about whether its close. This song certainly didn't merit the harsh criticism posted on this message board.

Thanks for the pronunciation advice. I try to get that right, but often (as in this case) resort to guesswork.

As for my use of the term "Scandinavia", I do think that "Northern Scandinavia" is a relatively accurate geographic description of the Sami homeland. Mari is indeed from Norway, but the Sami lands encompass parts of northern Norway, Sweden, and Finland, along with a bit of Russian territory.
    Correct,Mr,DJ,Sir !

Well, whatever you think about this song, it inspired an entertaining mix of comments, well worth reading.  I especially appreciated and agree with nmatavka's conclusions.  RP is never dull!

Me no like
The tune and even the tone remind me a lot of Broken English by Marianne Faithfull.
Her husky voice reminds me a little of Neko Case.
Yeah, "world music" is a horrible descriptor, because it isn't any descriptor at all. Much too coarse to convey any useful meaning.

Oh, and I am digging this.
I'm REALLY not liking this one, Bill. Repetitive and out of tune is a baaaad combination.

I like it.

are you sure? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_music

Some musicians and curators of music have come to dislike the term "World Music". To these critics, "World Music" is a parochial, catchall marketing term for non-western music of all genres. On October 3, 1999, David Byrne, the founder of the Luaka Bop music label, wrote an editorial in The New York Times entitled I Hate World Music<10> explaining his objections to the term. Byrne argued that the labeling and categorization of other cultures as "exotic" serves to attract an insincere consumership and deter other potential consumers.

perhaps you are one of those who dislikes the term? I guess you may be right that it is all "world music"? Not sure on this one. Now I'm confusing myself.

This song both intrigues and annoys me. Fortunately, the intriguing part is winning the race.
Yoiks!  It's a Sami song!
Of course I didn't know that until I looked at wiki; according to which, Mari would be considered a yoiker.  I like the song, sort of.  But I can't say I'm totally down with the yoiking.

Sage

It doesn't "suck" (per Ferrari fellow—and agree with thoughts regarding car love as basis of name) but it sure doesn't get anywhere. Purchased Robbie Robertson Music for the Native Americans CD that got air play here, so my probs with this tune aren't because I don't like the genre. (Maybe it's because every genre and every artist produce things that don't get anywhere. There are a couple on the Robertson album that don't get anywhere. One of the reasons that I like RP—someone is sifting out most of the stuff that doesnt' get anywhere. And are trotting out a lot of stuff that does.)

I love it!

"The colonizers brought Christianity and told the Sami they had to forget their primitive religion - and music was part of that religion. A lot of people of my parent's generation don't accept the music, they say it's devil's music and what you sing when you're drunk - the colonizers also brought alcohol. When I started to use a drum some people got worried and said, 'Is she a Shaman?' So I decided I couldn't use a Sámi drum."
 
Its kind of hard to talk about colonization when you have two people that have both occupied the same area for more than 10 000 years. Both the Sami and the ethnically Norwegians are natives of this country. Before either arrived it was occupied by ice only. The shameful treatment of the Sami by Norwegians over the many years is another issue though. Its bad and wrong, but not colonization.
