This beautiful release comes from the ICC's concerts. All the best performances are collected, where the recordings originate from 1980-1989. This is everything from true old-fashioned drum dance to choir singing and choir singing. The talented artists come from the ethnic countries. The world-famous Egon Sikivat from East Greenland, and one of Greenland's most beautiful choirs (Inngeratiles), also contributes to the record, which contains 47 numbers. The CD is a steam for tourists who want a piece of the real product home to their home country. The CD was released in 1992.
This CD is just for tourists who want the true Greenlandic culture. The CD contains 55 tracks with some of the biggest drum dancers from all over Greenland. It will not be more original than this - the oldest recordings are over 100 years old (1905), so it almost feels that you're back in time when listening to the drum dances. Sound quality varies greatly from number to number so there is definitely drum dance for every taste. In addition to Greenlandic drum dancers, there are also some from Canada, and inside the cover there are great descriptions of how the recordings have taken place (both in Greenlandic and English). The CD was released in 1992.
Drum dancesGreenlandic drum dances are, like the relatives found in Eastern and Central Canada, based around a single dancer who composes his song by his family while he dances, usually in a qaggi, a snow-house built just for community events such as the drum dance . The men's drum dancing skills are evaluated by his endurance in his long performance and the nature of his compositions. Drum dances are an important element of Greenlandic Inuit cultural cohesion, and function as personal expression, pure entertainment and social sanction.Many drumdances are competitive in nature, featuring two song cousins who humorously sing and dance, while pointing out the flaws in the other. This is generally a light-hearted, convivial event, but is also sometimes used to settle serious duels between warring families or individuals; The jokes are prepared ahead of time and the person who evokes the most laughter from the audience is considered the victor
For the first time ever, it has been possible to make a solo CD with a drummer. Imîna Imîna (1896-1984) was recognized as one of the biggest drummers in Qaanaaq. He lived as a prisoner, but at the same time he knew a wealth of songs that were inherited from generation to generation. He sang them with great indulgence and sweetness, while respecting the tradition. In 1962, Michael Hauser and Bent Jensen visited Qaanaaq, and recorded a lot of music on which the CD's three Thule CDs are based. Among them, a wide selection of Imini Imagna's songs, which now makes it possible to listen to the best drummer in Qaanaaq on an entire CD. Imina's grandson, Hivshu, Robert E.Peary II, has collaborated with his organizers through his grandfather's songs,
The collection of traditional music, kingsongs and peoples pictures from East Greenland was recorded from 1906 to 1989. Sounds we start in ancient Tunu, an East Greenland where Christianity has not yet made solid roots, and where drums, breaths and shamanism were still part of everyday life. And ending in Kulusuk church a beautiful Sunday morning in the 60s, where the drummers went to church and sang on the hymns
Along with the CD, we hear horrific breath stories, sweet kiss songs, drum-pow wows at home in people in the living rooms, with friends and acquaintances who sing. Some of the songs invade us in hunting techniques: how do you scratch the ice, so that the seal gets caught closer? The CD follows a 32-page English-language booklet, with James Bianco, who himself is East Greenlander, having comments on most of the songs. That way, it is possible to get a little behind the music and understand the cultural context the music and songs are part of.

The songwriter Ole Kristiansen has written the songs Nukáka Coster-Waldau and Jens Simonsen have re-arranged for more teat-friendly music. The songs are very artistic and the whole theater has been developed in close cooperation between Inuit Theater and Theater Solaris. The album here is very exciting and it's a new expression the songs have got. The originals of the works originate from Ole Kristiansen's Qasapi-p ullua kingulleq.
