Sara’s enormous commitment to Sami music and indigenous music has brought her over the Atlantic and back again. This fall, she will take part in WOMEX in Tampere, Finland as a speaker where she – together with ShoShona Kish and Māmā Mihirangi – will talk about ”the global sounds of indigenous resistance and resurgence, songs of ceremony and survival”.
Sara Ajnnak also participated in the North Sweden delegation in Brussels, together with Oskar Östergren (producer of the 2016 movie Sami Blood), where they discussed the importance of strong producers of culture in the northern region. Sara also played a concert in Brussels, in connection with this event.
”Sara was a revelation at Folk Alliance International. Her music is enchanting and she’s a wonderfully charming storyteller and performer. I’m so grateful to be introduced to Sara’s culture and artistry and look forward to the next time I see her in concerts.” – Andrea Warner, the author of The Authorized Biography: Buffy Sainte-Marie & associate producer at CBC Music.
