Very often on Fridays I feature something humorous to get the weekend off to a good start. Today, the video is serious and the humor is in the band's name, Chilly Friday. They label themselves "Rock from the Great White Pearl", which is an interesting way to describe Greenland.
They're from Greenland -- a country that knows a lot about chilly Fridays -- and a chilly Friday was the first day they met to play together. Hence, the name.
The band is now based out of Copenhagen for a number of reasons -- not the least of which is the cost of airfare for concert bookings.
They have at least two albums out, "Inuiaat 2000" (loosely translated as "Modern Greenland People". and "Saamimmiit talerpianut". Their third album is called "Tribute". Despite the Grenlandsk language titles of the first two, many of their songs are sung in English.
Today's video, "Sialuit", however, is not.
Sialuit kuupput qummut
Silarsuaq oqimaalluni ilunni
Qilerutit nungullartut sapilerlugit
Inuunerngaa toquvoq qatanngut
Sooruna inuit uku
Asasagut qimaallutik ilunni
Ilatik qimallugit inuujumanngivillutik
Inuunerngaa sapinngilat qatanngut
I was able to find the Grenlandsk lyrics, but nothing in English. I have no idea what the words mean, but I think the music and the visual images are interesting.
