Curawaka and Amazon Ensemble playing the Sarahkkas festival in Norway this weekend!

Sáráhkká's Sami Indigenous Festival is a place where people meet across cultures in the human meeting place: the heart. Sáráhkká is the goddess of love and fertility. Symbolically, she ignites a fire in an individual's heart to help them connect with their own power of love and soul awareness. The result is what you "birth" – what you bring into the world.

Sáráhkká is closely associated with the creation of animals and humans. By focusing on her power, we highlight the good force inherent in everyone. This way, we come into harmony with Mother Earth, animals, plants, and all life connected to creation and bringing forth. This creates a life in tune with ecological awareness. This allows us to live in accordance with nature's values.

How does today's modern human experience nature? How does our own inner nature meet the outer landscape?

At the festival, you can share your experiences with others. Here, you have the opportunity to create, bring joy, or simply be in the moment. We offer music, workshops, stalls, organic food, storytelling, seminars, entertainment, and lectures. You also have the chance to get to know exhibitors from Norway and Sápmi, as well as from indigenous traditions in other countries — ranging from shamans to artists, performers, and craftsmen.

Amazon Ensemble

Friday 14.6.24 21.00 - 22.00 Main Stage

Amazon Ensemble was established in 2005, inspired by the rich indigenous musicality of the Amazon rainforest. They create contemporary arrangements with elements of innovative tonal colors and soundscapes inspired by nature. Led by Brazilian musicians Eduardo Agni and Txai Fernando – both initiated into different indigenous traditions of the Amazon – the duo's strong musical unity is enhanced by the participation of special guests, master musicians from diverse backgrounds, who stand for the sanctity of life, our waters, our forests, our hearts, and give a voice to the indigenous people.


Saturday 15.6.24 21.30 - 22.30 Main Stage

Curawaka is an international music group of unique soundscapes, mixing elements from indigenous traditions, traditional Latin-American folk rhythms and soaring melodies from Scandinavian folklore. Curawaka has spent years living with, and learning from, indigenous tribes all over the globe. Their music is rich with harmonies from the natural world, with songs that echo the movement of a worldwide native culture, and celebrate the voices of First Nation Peoples, their spirituality and relation to the land.

Their debut album, "Call Of The Wild", released in 2019 on Nixi Music, launched Curawaka into wider public awareness. With hits including "Noku Mana", "Cuñaq", "Te Nande" and "He Yama Yo", they have reached the hearts of not only global underground earth warriors, but also the larger scene of alternative music, especially fans of folk and world music.

They released their second and much awaited album "Dreamtime" in Autumn 2023 with fantastic reception. In 2023 alone their two albums received over 10 million plays on Spotify and YouTube, with numbers constantly rising.

The Curawaka Live Experience invites us on a journey through earthly existence and our heavenly beyond. With their exquisite and unique musical craftsmanship, guided by Norwegian vocalist Anna Bariyani's luminous clear voice, the quintet weaves a magical tapestry through sound and soul, with stitches of world root rhythms and celestial melodies, through fabrics of waking and dreaming reality, with visions of hope and union, and the core prayer of a sacred world rising.
