Abstract

The paper gives an overview of the standing and socio-cultural importance of the jojk-tradition among the Sami (Laplanders), show different stylistic traits between the Southern and Nortern jojk dialects and discuss the socio-historical implications and reasons for these different styles. The influence and impact of the massmedia from the 1950s and the socio-economical changes within Sweden, Norway and Finland leding to new developments within the musical culture of the Sami will be the topic of the second part. It will be shown how different administrative traditions within the majority peoples have influenced the possibilities for a new kind of musical tradition within the Sami. The different stylistic blend of jojk and contemporary forms of popular music, as well as the functions and use of these new forms of modern Sami music are discussed.
