POLKA POLKA




Greetings from Nuuk, Greenland! I've been here for a few weeks to write some new Stina Stjern stuff. The next album will be very much inspired by the fact that my Grandfather was a hunter in Northeast Greenland in 1954/1955. He was then in his mid twenties. He lived alone in the ice with his sledge dogs, shooting polar bears. The cabin where he lived was, and still is, located at Kap Herschell. I'm planning on going there, but that is an adventure that has to wait for now...  Nuuk was therefore the closest I could get the exciting tales of the young hunter at this point! It's been inspiring indeed and a few new songs just sprung out of the wonderful mix of icebergs and polka dancing! (I actually can't get enough of this Polka dancing...)
