This year at festival artArctica in Helsinki musicians, artists, directors, ecologists and circumnavigators from Finland, Canada, Alaska, Greenland, Norway and Russia met again.
A musical group Ptitsa from Murmansk who our colleagues, the organizers of the Festival, met during Arctic Art Forum in Arkhangelsk!
Archaic electronics, music of spring water, documentation of circumnavigation across the Pacific ocean, fairy tales and myths, a cake with arctic cowberry — that is not a full list of all magic happened during the Festival.
Sami joik and jazz were notably a strong part.
