Years ago, at Finnish National Theatre’s Lavaklubi, Aarnio met Holmberg at an event they were both performing at. When it was time to start making an album Aarnio contacted Holmberg relating to a composition draft she had made. Holmberg liked the composed music, and said he’d be happy to write the lyrics for it.


Aarnio doesn’t speak Northern Sami but adores the beautiful language. She learned the lyrics and the pronunciation by listening to Holmberg’s demo recording.
