This is a Festival in my home country Sweden which I will follow, check it out!

Here's a wee description:

"Big media interest Liet-Lavlut
Date added: Sep 25, 2006


Minority languages song contest Liet-Lavlut in Östersund is arousing a big interest from the Swedish and the international media. On Saterday the 14th of October P2 radio will broadcast the songcontest live from the Storsjöteater in Östersund. Sámiradio, Sisuradio and Radio Norrbotten are also involved in the live broadcasting.

Listeners outside Sweden can follow the developments on the live stream of P2 radio. For Liet-Lavlut this is a step ahead, because earlier editions of Liet-Lavlut were never broadcasted live. Swedish television SVT will tape the songcontest and broadcast it later. Several other broadcasters wil show Liet-Lavlut as well: Omrop Fryslân, Basque language tv-station EiTB and TV Trento in Italy.

At least four of the participating artists will be accompanied by a tv-crew from their own country. Also various other radio stations and newspaper journalists throughout Europe have expressed their interest in the songcontest. Liet-Lavlut started in 2002 in Fryslân, the Netherlands, as Liet Ynternasjonaal with the ambition to promote the cultural, musical and linguistic diversity of Europe. This year Liet-Lavlut moved to the Swedish part of Sápmi, because the Sámi won the last two editions of Liet Ynternasjonaal in Friesland. This makes the Sámi the most musical minority of Europe, according to Frisian newspaper Leeuwarder Courant. The first edition of Liet Ynternasjonaal was won by the Catalan group Pomada.

The organisation of Liet-Lavlut is proud of the programme of its fourth edition, which exists of some of the finest bands and singers the stateless nations of Europe have to offer. Out of 61(!) entries, the jury selected eleven new songs in Basque, Frioulian, Frisian, Gaelic, Galician, Manx, Meankiëli, Occitanian, Romani, Sámi and Votian. One thing is certain; never before songs in all those languages could be heard at the same music festival. Songs in English or other large European languages are not welcome at Liet-Lavlut. By gathering interesting singers from minority language communities the organisation aims to promote the cultural and musical diversity to a large international audience. In a few years time Liet-Lavlut has become the most succesfull event when it comes to promoting minority languages to a large audience.

The following artists have been selected for Liet-Lavlut:
Arbe Garbe - A very lively band from Friűl, in the north of Italy.
Anna Murray - One of Scotlands best Gaelic singers and pipers, from the Outer Hebrides
Gari - A distinguished Basque singer, also a veteran from the Basque rock scene
Johan Kitti & Sara Ellen Bähr - A very strong joik duo and this years winners of the Sámi Grand Prix in Kautokeino
Jord - a Tornedalian folkband with interesting harmonies
Karavan Familia - A lively Romani band from Hungary, creating new songs based upon the rich Romani tradition
Liza - One of the most promising singers from Occitania
Moot - Gaelic drumm and bass from the isle of Man
Narf - One of the finest troubadours of Galicia, with a touch of samba
Raud Ants - Estonian folk metal band, which sings in Votian, an almost extinct language from the Russian border
Van Wieren - One of the best Frisian rock bands, the winner of Frisian song contest Liet 2005
You will be able to find more information about these artists on our website www.liet.nl and on the websites of the artists themselves.

In various of the participating nations the selection of their singer already aroused a great deal of interest. This is particularly true in Estonia and Friesland. The Votian band Raud Ants will travel to Östersund with a bus full of fans and Estonian music lovers. The Frisian delegation will exist of some 25 people. They also considered hiring a bus, but later opted for the much faster airplane. Among them the delegate for culture of the Frisian government, Bertus Mulder, and the councillor for culture of the Frisian capital of Ljouwert/Leeuwarden, Yvonne Bleize, will travel to Östersund. The travel expenses of various of the participating bands are sponsored by the nations they represent. The organising committee of Liet-Lavlut appreciates this support.

On the 12th of October the Storsjöteater hosts the worldpremiere of joikopera Skuvle Nelja. During the weekend of Liet-Lavlut the joikopera will be performed five times. Many visitors of Liet-Lavlut are expected to attend the joikopera as well and the other way round. Both events were consciously organised during the same weekend. This first joikopera in the history of music has been composed by Frode Fjellheim. Frode Fjellheim won Liet-Lavlut in 2003 with his band Transjoik. Fjellheim will participate at Liet-Lavlut as the president of the jury.

Liet-Lavlut has two prices to offer. A jury of experts from the eleven participating nations will give points to all participants but their own after the contest. There is also a public award. The Swedish audience will be invited to vote by sms-message immediately after the concert. The international audience will be able to join the voting process on the internet. The procedure will be explained at our website www.liet.nl.

Liet-Lavlut in Östersund is being organised by SWEBLUL, The Swedish Bureau for Lesser Used Languages and Estrad Norr, with the support of the Liet Foundation in Friesland."
