Choir Singing
As a crossroads of Inuit and European cultures, Greenland is a place where different traditions meld to create something truly unique. Historically, music on the island was played on drums made from polar-bear bladders. With the arrival of missionaries, however, the musical traditions evolved to encompass choral music, including psalms with a uniquely Greenlandic sound. You can still witness drum dancing on festive occasions, as well as hear local choirs perform at the community's church throughout the year.
