VAJAS LIVE IN NORWAY AND CZECH REPUBLIC

Vajas (Echo) is the synergy of three arctic voices: The Saami yoiks of Ande Somby, the violin- and singing voice of Kristin Mellem, and the synthesizer sound voyages of Nils Johansen. Tonight you can see them live at the Riddu Riddu festival!

In August the trio will play at the Havnnes Festival, in September at the Opening Ceremony of the Árnie Cultural Centere in Tromsø, and in November they will have a concert at Mestska knihovna in Prague. Check the live sections for details, or visit Vajas own website; www.vajas.info.

We met Ande, Kristin and Nils at the opening night of Peer Gynt in Tromsø, where Anneli plays Solveig. They could reveal that they are also finishing an album, but they also hoped to have a limited EP ready before the concert tonight, which will be available to buy at their concerts this summer and fall.

On their website you can download and listen to several tracks for free!
