Jonna Jinton is an artist, photographer, and blogger that has recently developed a unique vocal technique: kulning, or the ancient Swedish herding call. You may not understand it, but Jinton's high-pitched sound paired with an enchanting winter wonderland as her setting is pure magic. The music form has been used for communicating with animals from long distances for many years.

Jinton herself also has a fascinating background. At 21, she left Gothenburg, the second-largest city in Sweden, and settled in the quiet village of Grundtjärn. How quiet? Population: 11. According to her official site, it was one of the best decisions she's ever made. She had felt choked by the big city life and longed for a sense of peace.

"Away from traffic, shopping mall and noise," she wrote. "Away from the crowded city parks, the real forests and gravel roads."
