Konsert med Sámi Jienat i Tromsø & Ellen's Gakti

Konsert med Sámi Jienat i Tromsø & Ellen’s Gakti

My main purpose in visiting Norway earlier this month was to visit my dear friend Ellen & her family.  It was a special treat to also be there during her choir’s (Sámi Jienat) concert in a beautiful location in central Tromsø. The performance was gorgeous & there was this one particularly spunky song that had me electrified & giddy. Afterwards I had the opportunity to meet many of Ellen’s ch0ir members & friends & enjoy warm, post concert chats with them.

On my last evening in Tromsø, Ellen & I took time to photograph her specially hand made Gakti & its exquisite detail work.
