Mari Boine

Mari Boine

Born in 1956 Mari Boine is a Norwegian Sami musician who combines her native Sami tunes with jazz and rock providing a touching emotional and moving sound. Her music is her voice for her fellow Sami people who are a minority of the Norwegian colonization and live in difficult conditions in the northern skirts of the country.

She made her first debut with "Gula Gula"

This is a film where Mari plays a woman who tries to escape from the difficult conditions of the Sami minority after the region was colonized.
