The Greenlandic rock band Sumé brought about a revolution over the course of three albums released between 1973 and 1976.
Being the first musicians to sing in their mother-tongue, Greenlandic, and bringing to the language words for ‘revolution’ and ‘oppression’, they made waves with an independence movement in a country which had been colonised by Denmark for 250 years. This is the story of how they made history.
