Lyrics&Music: Kristin Mellem

The young coast-dwelling Sámi girl Hege Liland left her home region and moved to the university town of Tromsø. Despite her education and a brilliant career, something was completely wrong. The answer came up on the mountain: your heart has known this for a long time, you must go back. Hege and her family packed their things, and bought a farm in Nord-Troms region. A new life with organic food production.

«It came by itself, the mountain just knew it. It came by itself, the forest just sang. All that I needed was hearing the song, all that I needed was belief.»

As one of five partners in the Interreg project Our Stories along the Northern Lights Route, the group JORD has been behind this music production.

Tittel: Tilbake

Den unge sjøsamen Hege Liland forlot hjembygda og flyttet til universitetsbyen Tromsø. Utdanning og en lysende karriere til tross – noe var helt feil. Oppe på fjellet kom svaret: Hjertet ditt har visst det lenge, du skal tilbake. Hege og familien brøt opp, kjøpte bondegård i Nord-Troms. Et nytt liv med økologisk matproduksjon.

«Det kom av seg sjøl, det var fjellan som visste. Det kom av seg sjøl, det var skogen sin sang. Alt det eg trengte var å lytte til sangen, alt det eg trengte var å tru».

Gruppen JORD har som en av fem parter i Interreg Nord projektet Our Stories along the Northern Lights Route stått bakom denna musikproduktion.
