gerth - a new name in Greenlandic music!
Sume released this album in 1973 and took the whole of Greenland by storm! Numbers like "Piffiit Nunaat", "Imigassaq" and "Heimaey Eqqaallugu" are contributing to this brilliant album, known to everyone. Sume is not just a band but a cultural heritage for the Greenlandic people, so it's a pleasure to get this CD on the street, as before, was just about to get on LP. Their songs are considered part of the history of Greenland and they represent the greatest songs in the country's music history. There are no Greenlandic musicians who do not know Sume, and this album is a good reason for this. The album "Sumut" was released on CD to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band.
"Inuit Nunaat", which too many is the NUMBER of all Greenlandic songs, is the title song of this album, which contains 9 songs. You can not say enough about Sume - they are the biggest rock band in Greenland. Their music has inspired many musicians here and that this CD has finally come out is amazing for all of their faithful fans who have followed them for many years. The album was only available on LP before this came out. The band has its 40th anniversary and this classic album came back in 1974 and contains some of their greatest hits, such as "Inuit Nunaat", Qullissat "and Naluvara Ilisimanera". Songs like now three generations have taken on and do not even think next generation bites on these immortal songs.
SUME - Greenland's answer to Beatles became the first ULO band to come out with a record.
After their first success, they were almost bound to come out with a new record. This made them to the highest extent by publishing a CD that became even more popular than the first. This CD is one of Greenland's best-selling CDs ever. It was produced in 1988 and contains 10 songs - including "Miki" and "Unnuaq Sungamami?". Siiva's unique singing voice hits the audience with an indescribable energy that captures the listener completely. Zikaza - Greenlandic music at its best! This is proved every time Siiva is on stage and there is always a crowded crowd of people of both young and old.
Ole Kristiansen is one of the most famous artists in Greenland, and this CD, which contains 10 songs, has sold over 10,000 copies. Ole Kristiansen is best known for his amazing text universe, where he uses lots of metaphors and imagery that have deeper messages. His songs have been ravaged throughout the nationwide radio, and his giant fans are always waiting for his next releases. Everyone knows the number "Zoo Inuillu", which even broke through in Australia with the original people: "the Aboriginals". The CD was recorded in 1989 and ranges from the young to the middle aged audience.
So the most wanted collection plate is finally back on the market! Ataatsimut 4 contains 12 songs, where it is Ole Kristiansen's song "Anorersuaq" which is the most well-known song on the record. He has also contributed his song "Asanninneq", which is also a very well-known song. This album is packed with talented artists such as Erland Olsen who plays his lovely party song "Unnuk Taanna" and Zikaza, who plays the song "Kammalaat". The CD was produced in 1987.
SUME fans located across the coast have been waiting for this 1994 release. Their style is the same with their multi-voice vocals and pace-changing music. There are both fast and slow songs that still focus on both the younger and the older audience. SUME is one of the few bands that hits such a broad audience that no matter where they play, there will always be a full house. It is also amazing that such an old band still can hold together and make wonderful music. This CD contains 12 well-known songs.
This album was 4 years along the way and you can say that Ole Kristiansen is back and you can feel that the artist has continued his unique style. The album got great reviews (2004), not least because of the innovative introduction to the CD, but also because of the way he composed the songs. He does it in his very own way, where he expresses himself through a lot of metaphors and catching melodies, which sometimes seem completely spiritual. The text universe continues to surprise the audience and this record is proof that Ole Kristiansen has come to stay. The song "Ungasilleqisoq" became an instant hit and the album consists of 8 tracks that are exciting and listenable.

The album contains 10 songs.
NANOOK following up on their great succes now presenting 10 new songs – title of album is AI AI – a selfmade expression of words filled with everything that is possitive. Lyrics about self-assertion, finding your strength and identity as well as songs about our beautiful Greenlandic nature. Tracks from this album was used in promotion of Greenland (Visit Greenland).

NANOOK was introduced to Greenland five years ago and has sold over 15.000 ex. of their music in spite of the fact that songs are in the aboriginal language Greenlandic. The band has been touring abroad as in most Nordic countries but also in Canada and USA. Three years went by and this 3rd album Pissaaneqaqisut (We who have the strength)makes it clear that there is a common theme both in cover layout as well as lyrics and music.

Nanook releases new album after 4 years!
After their first collection, which became a big success, it would be quite wrong not to come out with a successor. After many years, Qarsoq has released several albums and a wealth of good songs. Therefore, it was not difficult to produce the successor. The CD contains 12 classics as well as a new number that was chosen for the title number. The album is more varied than the first collection, not least because of the items that have been modernized. Huge hits like "Green Shit" and "Tamatta Girl" are on the record with a whole new sound. Hans Rosenberg and Enok Poulsen include the album. Again, the album addresses both young and old.
Inneruulat comes from Aasiaat and has produced 10 numbers for this album. The numbers are very popular with, among other things, the big hit "Inneruulatut Najorarpugut". The CD was released back in 1988. After this album, Inneruulat has also released two others, and they are really good at keeping the style they are known for - the seventies style with the good old guitar solos. It's hard to say what three of their releases are best, as they are all popular - all three albums have some of the most famous songs in Greenland. If you like an Inneruulat album, you can all like them all. Lovely nostalgic plates.

Among Relatives – an ”underground band” in Denmark was signed in Atlantic Studio as band members has relation to Greenland – and the studio found the band interesting and inspiring for Greenlandic musicians. Record was not recorded and mastered in Atlantic Studio but in Sweeden where known musicians as Sigur Rós, Neil Young have produced. Lyrics are both aggressive and sensitive – all instruments are important, wellplayed and intense. The vocals from the leadsinger Jimmy Andersen, also writer of the tracks, are perfect for this indie-rock style.
