Traditional Greenlandic Music

Model/varenr.: ULO-75

Denne cd er lige noget for turister som vil have den ægte grønlandske kultur med sig. CD’en indeholder 55 tracks med nogle af de største trommedansere fra hele Grønland. Det bliver ikke mere originalt end dette – de ældste indspilninger er over 100 år gamle (1905), så det nærmest føles at man er tilbage i tiden når man lytter til trommedanserne. Lydkvaliteten varierer meget fra nummer til nummer så der er helt sikkert trommedans til enhver smag. Udover grønlandske trommedansere medvirker der også nogle fra Canada, og inde i coveret er der flot beskrevet hvordan indspilningerne er foregået (både på grønlandsk og engelsk). CD’en blev udgivet i år 1992.


Drum dances
Greenlandic drum dances are, like the relatives found in Eastern and Central Canada, based around a single dancer who composes sungs 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 lengthy 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 drum dances 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
