Presentation of Nuortijärven leuʹddit 1994–1996
Nuortijärven leuʹddit 1994–1996 is a work presenting the Skolt Sámi leuʹdd tradition of the Kola peninsula, as collected during the Kola Sámi Project, which was carried out in 1993–1997. At its centre is musical material scored and analysed by musician and musicologist Ilpo Saastamoinen. The work is a sequel to Son vuäinn, a collection of recordings and texts previously compiled by the Global Music Centre. This material is now being published for the first time as an extensive collection of sheet music.
The work features leuʹdds performed by two Skolt Sámi heritage practitioners, Anfissa Gerassimova and Anastassia Gerassimova. The texts have been transcribed by Satu Moshnikoff and Markus Juutinen. The illustrations are by Erja Taskinen. The online version of the work was produced by Marko Jouste and Markus Juutinen.
