Discography



ČIHKKOJUVON (HIDDEN)

The darkness of the polar night and illuminated only by the radiance of the glimmering Midnight Sun – in a land of great contrasts. We thrive in these surroundings that our common mother, the earth, has provided us. The great forces of nature and the cycle of 8 seasons are an essential part of our lives. Still we need to leave our birth places to expand further, to explore and share our cultural knowledge.

During these journeys, the world created by the urban human and the ancient traditional ways have created conflicts in us that clash and create a yearning search for wholeness. Gájanas is a cultural fusion from the north reflecting and resonating those echos from the past to the present, balancing between these two worlds by listening and observing while striving endlessly for a deeper way of being like rivers navigating to the same vast ocean.

Almmi dolat

Ollu lea maid oaidnit
Viisodat lea viiddis
Váibmosuonat šávadit
Ferten vuolgit jođašit
Varra lea mus báidnit
Nástegártta dutki

Mátkki áiggun juogadit
Duinna Davvenásti
Ii leat šat seavdnjat
go almmidolat čuvgelit

Northern Lights

There’s a lot to be seen
The wisdom is vast
My arteries keep rushing
I have to roam off
My blood tones me to
a scholar of the star map

I shall share the journey
with you, North Star
It’s dark no more
under the northern lights

Dollagaccat

Gamasvuomi njolgina jo veljon go jo
Guhtta ledje hearggi veljon go jo
Golbma ledje dollagacca veljon go jo

Hooves of Fire

The trotter of Gámasvuopmi
There were six draft reindeer
Three with hooves of fire

Bieggagaikkohat

Das gos biegga jorggiha čajehan
dihte siskkáldas jikŋon eatnama

Snow-blow

Where the wind shifts revealing
the frozen ground within

Diamántadulvvit

Allagasas goaikkehit goaikkanasat
Sávan šávadit ja arvohallat
Čuvges čáhci min kristállagáldu
viisodaga vuoiŋŋanas, eallima álgu

Divtte golggiidit, divtte rávnnjiidit
Ale atte buhtes fámuid goldnat
Diškal olbmuid oivviidda
Diamánttadulvvit leat diida

Floods of Diamonds

Streams of drops from high up
I want to get drenched under the sudden rain
Clear water, our crystal source
a breath of wisdom, the beginning of life

Let it flow, let it stream
Don’t let the pure powers wither
Splash it on people’s heads
The Diamond Floods are an omen

Čihkkojuvvon

Dan ii jur dieđe goas ja mo. Rivttes
luodda lea čihkkojuvvon

Hidden

It is not known when and how. The right
path is hidden

Hušša sisa

Ávdinvuohta
goalus miella
Vajálduvvan doaresbeallai
Oalgekurrii sattáhallá
láivves šurra
bovde gávpogii

Savdnjilit, šluvgilit, geahpedit noađi
Riittaid, meanuid hárjehit
Birra jándora hurgguhit

Čuorvvas badjána
Huša sisa buokčalan mun
Johtolaga ruodja čuodjá
Ođđa nuohtaid beasan áiccadit

Savdnjilit, šluvgilit, geahpedit noađi
Riittaid meanuid hárjehit
Birra jándora hurgguhit

Hušša sisa / Into the Racket

Desolation
Gloomy mind
Forgotten aside
By my shoulder wafts
soft murmur
invites me to town

Reducing the burden, shaking it off
Practicing rituals, ceremonies
Dashing all round the clock

Louder cries
I dive into the racket
The roar of the traffic resounds
I sense new melodies

Reducing the burden, shaking it off
Practicing rituals, ceremonies
Dashing all round the clock

Geažehis áhpi

Ohcalan lieggasa
Jorggihan du jiena guvlui

Sirddašan, lahkonattan
Jus de ollešin
Rasttildit garra rávnnjjiid
Guorrasit dan duovdagii

Dego sáttočalbmi
Buokčalan du
geažehis áhpái

Nugo sáttočalbmi
Buokčalan du
geažehis áhpái

Endless Sea

I long for warmth
And turn towards your voice

I move, approach slowly
In order to cross strong currents
To line up with the landscape
In good time

Like a grain of sand
I dive into
your endless sea

Like a grain of sand
I dive into
your endless sea

Vuolgge muinna

Boađe čájehan mun
suollemas bálgáid
Čuovvul fal
Čuovvul fal

Duon dievá duohken
Ija ságaid gullat
Áiccadetne
Áiccadetne

Vuolgge muinna várrái
Vuolgge muinna
Vuolgge muinna várrái
Vuolgge muinna

Vuolgge muinna
Vuolgge muinna
Vuolgge muinna

Vuoiŋŋastetne bottu
Dutkat almmi mearkkaid
Idja njáhká
Idja njáhká

Čalmmis čalbmái geahččat
Oainnátgo don mu čađa
Savkal munnje
Savkal munnje

Come with me

Come and I’ll show you
hidden paths
Come along
Come along

Behind that mound
To hear the stories of the night
To sense
To sense

Come with me on the hill
Come with me
Come with me on the hill
Come with me

Come with me
Come with me
Come with me

We’ll take a rest
to study the signs of the sky
The night creeps along
The night creeps along

To look into each other’s eyes
Do you see through me
Whisper to me
Whisper to me
