A MUSIC-LOVING PEOPLE

Most people know where Greenland is on the map, but did you know that every year in Greenland some 10-15 CDs featuring Greenlandic music are released? And that the best-selling CDs sell 5,000 copies? Perhaps that doesn’t sound like much, but is actually quite impressive in a country that is home to just 56,000 inhabitants.

“Did you know that every year in Greenland some 10-15 CDs featuring Greenlandic music are released?”

We love music!
