Idenstam / Stinnerbom / Huizar: Saami Requiem
Title: Saami Requiem
Label: Toccata
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

A Saami Requiem is an extraordinary meeting-place of musical cultures - western classical, Saami yoik, folk-dance, electric rock, blues, improv and more. It takes the form of a journey to Saajva, the Kingdom of Death in Saami religious practice. In this death Mass the Swedish organist Gunnar Idenstam and Saami artist Ola Stinnerbom provide a parallel to the Christian Requiem, with Ola Stinnerbom as noite, the shaman who acts as guide to the Kingdom of Death - and back to this life, celebrated in the uplifting closing hymn. Some of the percussion sounds are sampled from traditional Saami drums made by Ola Stinnerbom after ancient models; the electric guitars provide a link to rock groups like Deep Purple, and Gunnar Idenstam's unmistakable style marries the French organ tradition with the captivating world of Swedish folk-music.
