Irdon consists of four young Sámi musicians. The group was founded in a small village in Lapland, Inari. The name "Irdon" comes from a wilderness area up in the northernmost Finland. There is a mountain called Irdonoaivi and a small lake called Irdonjávri under the mountain. It is a very barren area where no tree can grow. You can hear the roughness of the wild Lapland in the band's music, which is a combination of ethno, joik, symphonical elements and heavymusic. The lyrics combine ancient Sámi mythology and modern problems such as indigenous peopleʼs rights in Lapland but also around the world. Main theme is how to maintain a traditional culture and yet stay in time and evolve. Singing language is North Sámi.
Single "Máddariid lávlla" (Song of the ancestors) was released 17.4.2015. The song was well received especially amongst the heavy-music listeners. Jonne Järvelä, the singer and guitarist of the famous folk-metal band Korpiklaani, said that Irdon is a great new band from Lapland with a great future. He also shared the song in Facebook where the song got over a hundred likes and shares.
Debut album was released 19.2.2016.
