Collaboration between Johanna Sevä and Love Kjellsson creating modern Sami music. It’s a meeting of two individuals with radically different backgrounds but a common aim of expressing their thoughts and feelings.
Moivi’s soundscape is a mix of the joik tradition and the Swedish violin tradition with influences from modern pop, rock and ambient music. The meditative athmosphere is inspired by ancient music which aims to put the audience in contact with their feelings.
The music is describing historical events and also comments the modern society and way of life. The compositions is leaving space for improvisation to let the expression of the compositions evolve over time. The music is never constant but played as a reaction or provocation of the moment.
The word Moivi is Sami language and means chaos or disorder.
