Nive and the Deer Children - Feet First
Feet First' the new album by Greenlandic folk pop singer Nive & The Deer Children was recorded between 2012 and 2015 all over the world: Greenland, Denmark, Belgium and England. Also all over the United States in Tucson Arizona, Athens Georgia, Lexington Kentucky, Nashville Tennessee and Asheville North Carolina.
"The first track on the album "Still the Same" for example would have never had that cumbiarhythm at the end without going to southern Arizona and playing with Howe Gelb and his Tucson crew in the comfort of their own homes. Also, the same goes for songs like "Tulugaq", track four. Nivé wrote that song along with a set of twelve year old twin girls from a foster care far up north in Uummannaq, Greenland. It was the very last song recorded for the album and would have never happened if she recorded this album traditionally in one place. A song that one should notice is the song"Ole", which is a new recording of Ole Kristiansen's "Oqaqqusaajunnaaruma", which is a very respected song in Greenland.
Also, appearing on Feet First are artist and friends such as Howe Gelb, Ralph Carney, Teitur, and John Parish.
