Katarina Barruk is the world’s only performing and recording artist in Ume Sámi. Ume Sámi is a Sámi language listed as critically endangered by UNESCO, with only a few dozen speakers remaining. By creating music in Ume Sámi, Katarina Barruk invites the audience into her own world and creates a space to breathe and reflect on the interaction between nature and music.

Katarina Barruk’s second solo album, Ruhttuo, was released in October 2022, and she is joined on stage by a band of Norwegian musicians. Since 2015, when her debut album Báruos was released, Katarina Barruk has been actively performing on festival stages in Sweden and Norway.
