Intrigue is a Sámi band formed in 1989 in Karasjok, Norwegian side of Sápmi. It is one of the cornerstones of Sámi rock and the only band in the world playing Heavy Joik – a mix of traditional Sámi music and heavy rock.
Intrigue is primarily a live band and has played hundreds of gigs in Norway and abroad. They have performed on most of the festivals north of the Arctic Circle, where they have drawn full houses at their concerts and the band has been regarded as one of the best live bands in the area.
Their EP Heavyjoik (2002) was certified gold in Norway and Intrigue was one of the best-selling artists of 2002/2003.
In Ijahis idja you can get intrigued by Intrigue and experience their unique combination of rock and joik in the darkness and warmness of the late summer night.
