Attention all Midgardsblot attendees! Get ready to experience a unique and powerful performance by one of the most interesting young Sábmie’s artists, Katarina Barruk. With her clear, distinctive voice and steadfast presence on stage, Barruk creates a space of vulnerability and strength that will leave you breathless.

Barruk sings in one of her mother tongues, Ume Sámi. The language is on UNESCO's red list of critically endangered languages, but right now many Umesámis are taking the language back. For Katarina Barruk, doing music in Ume Sámi is a way of inviting her friends and the audience into her universe, where Ume Sámi is a norm, and alive.

Katarina Barruk is joined by a band consisting of talented and skillful Norwegian musicians and visualists. The breathtaking live show brings freedom and a breathing space for people to rest in what it is like to be human.

Katarina Barruk tours regularly and actively in Norway and Sweden where she has created a loyal audience since the release of her debut album in 2015. In 2020 she received the Swedish writer and composer prize “SKAPs Kulturbärarpris”. A new full-length studio album will be released in October 2022.
