In September 2020, Avant Joik performed a mind blowing, powerful concert at Bergen Kunsthall during Joar Nango Festival Exhibition. The concert was recorded and has now been pressed into vinyl, launching on 23 April!
Avant Joik is Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje (vocals and live electronics) and Katarina Barruk (vocals/joik) with live visuals by Matti Aikio. The project blends joik and vocal experimentation with an electronic, experimental palette, evoking the eerie, contemplative atmospheres of the North, while the turmoil and distortion of an untamed, forceful nature lurks beneath.
