Masterly debut from Sami singer-songwriter, 4 Jun 2009
On his debut recording, Niko Valkeapaa and producer Georg Buljo have created something very special. While the songs are rooted in Sami tradition, they also draw on influences from British/American music. The result is totally individual. The overall tone is understated, but the effect on the listener is powerful and lingers in your mind. Niko's sensational voice is warm and his beautiful melodies will beguile you. This is a CD you'll play again and again.
