WE WELCOME: Avant Joik!

Posted on April 27, 2021

Avant Joik is Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje (vocals and live electronics) and Katarina Barruk (vocals/joik) with live visuals by Matti Aikio, and 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.

Live in Bergen is Avant Joik’s debut album and was released on Bergen Kunsthall April 2021. The album consists of three collaborative compositions by Ratkje and Barruk. Aikio’s visuals from the concert feature in the cover design of the new album.
