VILDÁ: Vildaluodda / Wildprint

Arctic fells, frosty winds, wide waters and deep forests. That is our home – the North. For us it is the birthplace of our attitude as well as many many memories, a source of inspiration, stories and tradtition, a vast playground full of endless trails to travel. Wild and fascinating! Yet it is also the place where we feel the most safe and rooted. When we decided to set off on an adventure together as VILDÁ, we would never guess what an exciting journey begun. We have discovered, felt and experienced together. And as we stroll around the musical wilderness, we are leaving behind a trace like any other creature or being on this planet – it looks like a wildprint.
