INUIT - 55 HISTORICAL RECORDINGS OF TRADITIONAL MUSIC FROM GREENLAND 1905-87 (CD)


2016 repress "More than an hour of ultra-rare documents, the testimony of a century of inuits recordings! As a guide through this abundant material, we included a complete 24 pages booklet... a very helpful complement not only for purists! Voices recorded almost hundred years ago in Greenland on wax glader cylinders for today, hearing a lost shamanic story, a duel-song, a mounful melody, this record presents an unique collection of drumdance and songs - 55 historical recordings of traditional Greenlandic music from1905 (by the british ethnologist William Thalbitzer) to 1987 and collected by the danish ethnomusicologist Michael Hauser. This is - beyond the document in itself - a way to be lost in time and space. Hope, happiness, mourning - humanity is right there." (label info) CD version comes in 6 pages digipack
