Debutalbum Mother Tongues

 

Mother tongues is a tribute to the human universality across time and distances, centering around motherhood. At the same time, the title also represents all the different languages which are being sung in.


We have collected a number of stories, songs and lullabies from different European singing traditions, ranging from the very north of Lapland over Scandinavia to the Baltics, and Eastern and Central Europe. The interpretations of these traditions draws inspiration from the tonal language of European folk music, church music and modern rhythmical music.

Te Orbina  

 

The Sami people have lived by means of fishing and herding reindeer in the northern parts of Sandinavia and Russia for millenia. Their music is distinguished by a life in close relation to nature. The meditative acapella singing found in this type of music is called joiking.


Te Orbina is our interpretation of a song rooted in the joik tradition. 

 

 

 

Nukku Nukku


This Finnish lullabye is a mother's goodbye to her deceased infant. In the 19th Century Finland experienced a severe famine and as a consequence many people, especially children, lost their lives. Many lullabies from this period in history are ambiguous since sleep and death were cloesly related.

Tri Bjulbjula Pejat


Since our inception Nevesta's Voice has been enchanted by Bulgarian choir music. We have visited Bulgaria where we studied this rich vocal tradition.


This harvest song was filmed during a live performance in Athens, 2018.
