A soothing voice can calm the savage beast and when singing a traditional lullaby, that voice can help calm your racing mind. This gorgeous video captures imagery of snowy landscapes, warm campfires, celestial star-filled skies, and a wolf on the hunt. This video provides you with a mental escape from the rat race and off to an inspiring world filled with beautiful vistas and snow-covered trees.
And that’s just what this vlogger did with her life when she moved to rural Sweden.
A niche influencer
Jonna Jinton is a creative soul who fled her busy life in the city to a cabin in the country. She blogs about the beauty of Sweden, experiencing the seasons and nature that surrounds her in her rural home. And Jinton is a huge social media influencer, blogging about her life and creating music, paintings, videos, and jewelry.
On her website, Jonna explains why she decided to make the change.
“I felt unhappy and had an inexplicably strong desire for something completely different. Nature, tranquility, fresh air, meadows, lakes, sunsets. Silence. Peace of mind.”
Jonna moved to a tiny village with a population of ten.
“So I decided to move. I left the apartment, the school, and my life in Gothenburg and moved to the summer cottage in Grundtjärn, a village of 10 inhabitants.”
Inspiration from Nature
In an interview for the Swedish website The Local, Jinton explains how she is inspired to do her work.
“Without a doubt, I get all of my creative ideas from the nature around me … I need to be in nature otherwise I genuinely can’t write or paint.”
This soothing video is Jinton’s interpretation of a well known Swedish lullaby, “Vargsången,” which translates into English as, “The Wolf Song.” The song is written by beloved Swedish author Astrid Lindgren, and was featured in the movie based on Lindgren’s book, “Ronia, the Robber’s Daughter.”
The song has been in Jinton’s life since she was a child, and it’s haunting vocals still affect her as an adult.
“For a long time now I wanted to make my own version of it, and make some small changes in the melody.”
The original version can be heard on youtube.
The Wolf Song
Vargsången is a lullaby sung by a mother who hears a wolf howling at night. She knows the wolf is hungry and hunting for food. She tells the wolf that he will never take her child.
In the video, Jinton shows a real wolf on the prowl through a snowy landscape. Seeing a wolf up close and personal is not something you see every day. They are truly majestic creatures and in this video, you can see detail in their eyes.
The beautiful video for her version of the song was filmed around her village, in the county of Västernorrland.
Jinton captures such striking imagery involving fire, ice, starry skies, and wolves. It is no wonder that Jinton is getting so well known around the world, her filmmaking skills are on point and her eye for beauty is in full effect with this video.
The night skies in this remote part of Sweden are absolutely spectacular.
The sky has more white stars than dark space, as light pollution is at a minimum. Making for an awe-inspiring look into outer space. You’ll also catch a glimpse of the Northern lights shimmering across the night sky.
Youtubers are commenting on Jonna’s voice, Swedish culture, and enjoyment of the video.
“I think we all agree that Jonna has a heavenly voice.”
“I dont know much about this culture but whenever I hear people talking about it or the music i get this feeling of warmth and comfort and it really soothes me and I would definitely like to learn more about the culture.”
“This is one of the most divine and heavenly things I’ve heard all year. Phenomenal work.”
Sit back and relax into another world, as the soothing song and beautiful imagery flicker across the screen.
