Lapland is a geographic region, divided between the states of Norway, Russia, Sweden and Finland. The Sami are official recognized as a minority group in the 3 Scandinavian countries.  There is currently a renaissance of Sami culture, with groups that perform traditional music, as well as youth groups that incorporate features of that music to more modern sounds.
