Synopsis: This study provides a comprehensive description of the song culture of the people of the Greenland's Thule area, the Inughuit. In 1937, the eskimologist Erik Holtved recorded 134 traditional songs. Transcriptions and scientific processing of that collection constitute the nucleus of this work. The songs are presented and notated in their full length - with drum accompaniment and the texts/singing syllables used - but also with analyses of a representative stanza from each song. In addition, several other collections are notated and analyzed, including recordings from Uummannaq-Upernavik in 1912, recordings from the Copper Inuit areas in 1914-16, Bent Jensen and Michael Hauser's 1962 recordings from Thule, and recordings from Baffin Island in the 1970s. The study includes historical as well as recent data; the views of the indigenous population; measurable parameters, such as singing methods, drum construction, and handling; and factual information about form and melody types derived from the transcriptions. The book is richly illustrated with pictures, photos, and music notation, and many songs can be heard on the accompanying CD.
