Nuuk Nordisk Kulturfestival 2017: A Glimpse Into Nordic Musical Collaboration

Inside the 2018 Disko Arts Festival

We had flown down from Uummannaq two days prior, and had arrived in Ilulissat the previous morning. After a restful night’s stay at the Hotel Arctic, we took our bags and made our way down to the tourist dock, passed the hulls of old wooden boats in refit, and towards the young Greenlandic man standing by the gangway in a blue, quilted jumpsuit.
