Thanks for providing this translation! Any ideas as to what 'vuoy' actually means? A kind of interjection, maybe? Anyhoo, the Sami are one of my favorites when it comes to my random perusing of other various cultures around the world. I'm glad to see some of their music here on LT :bigsmile:

I have no idea. I was thinking interjection at first too, but considering the indigenous/folk nature of the song it might have some meaning. Sami is indeed a nice language, and the Sami are interesting people. If you liked this one, try and find the entire album, there are plenty of good songs there with a similar vibe.

"Vuoi" is just an interjection, I would propose that the closest English equivalent for it might be something like "oh".
