Along with the likes of Tussilago and Miriam Bryant, Sweden’s Maxida Märak joined us for an exclusive video interview at ‘Where’s the Music?’ Festival in Norrköping!

Maxida Märak is an incredible performer. The hip hop artist and political activist produces music in a unique and original way, fusing musical and cultural elements from her Sami heritage into powerful urban anthems. Hard rap and heavy electronic beats are mixes with ‘jojk’, the traditional Sami way of singing, to create a ‘Sami dancefloor’ unlike anything we’ve heard before.

A native of Jokkmokk in the province of Lapland, Maxida’s lyrics are straightforward and honest, often political. She writes from her own story, based on her insight of society, and hopes that this will provoke thoughts and understanding for her and her origins.

We were lucky enough to catch Maxida at Norköpping’s ‘Where’s the Music?’ festival a few weeks back, where she talked to us about the importance of emotions in regards to her live performances, as well as how she uses her ‘Rebel Music’ as a political weapon to reach a wider audience…
