The band is considered to be a natural successor after Mari Boine, who is known for developing yoik and modernising Sami music for decades. With a new and exciting fusion of traditional yoik, urban synths and text universe that combines both Sami and English, ISÁ K continues to push the limits of the Sami music. ISÁ K released their debut album in February this year. 2019 was very hectic for the band. The vocalist Ella Marie won «Stjernekamp» (Stars) Norways biggest TV- show, they have played at Norway Grammy Award, Nobel Peace Prize, and played around 30 festivals and 60 club shows. The frontwoman Ella Marie Hætta Isaksen (21 years) has become an important voice and role model for sami youths fighting for environment, sami traditions and how important it is that the sami people are proud of their history. Daniel (keys) has his roots from both Norway and Gambia and Aleksander (drums) is Greek- Norwegian, but all three live in Oslo, Norway.
