Alexander Rybak in the TV-show “Muitte Mu”

Alexander Rybak learned to joik in the Norwegian TV-show “Muitte Mu”.

In September 2017 Alexander spent 3 days in Kirkenes in Northern Norway together with his mentor Frode Fjellheim to learn the Sami joik.  After that he went home to compose his first joik “Let The Music Guide You”. The joik was performed for the first time in front of an invited audience in Karasjok in Northern Norway in February this year.

The 3 days in Kirkenes and the performance in Karasjok were broadcast on NRK 10th of November 2018.  “Let The Music Guide You” is a mix of English lyrics and joik, and less than a week after the release it was a hit on YouTube. You can read more about that and Alexander’s reaction to this below the  video.
