Day Two of the Nuuk Nordisk Kulturfestival brings music lovers and artists the world over to Greenland

Day two of the Nuuk Nordisk Kulturfestival in Greenland had artists, locals and music-lovers from all over the world dancing and tapping their feet across town.

Nive Nielsen and her band, The Deer Children, took over The Manhattan, playing their signature original folk melodies. The Greenlandic singer-songwriter stunned the crowd with her jazzy vocals, melting like a honeypot over a slow fire. The set was long and well-composed, delighting an enthralled crowd who kept coming back from more. Even the snow-storm outside did not stop people from pouring into the small venue, filling it to its capacity.

Meanwhile in the Bryggen, leading DJ Joxaren took the night to another level, hitting the turntables with a flare and spicing up the dance floor with his brand of Finnish Tango music. Having performed over 500 live music shows in different parts of the world since 1988, the Swede had everyone up and dancing in no time with his amazingly quirky set.

In between, an open mic saw many others taking the stage to showcase their talents. There was everything from Swedish hip-hop to local folk music and more. The party continued late into the night, until the doors closed and the snow had stopped. It was no surprise that many festival-goers and artists alike were late for breakfast the next morning!
