Greenlandic Songs II 1/2
The two stamps show Camilla Nielsen’s breathtaking interpretation of regional Greenlandic songs.
The images depicted on the stamps are part of a series of river illustrations by Camilla Nielsen which have been given to guitar tutor John Hansen, in connection with the aim of promoting knowledge of and interest in Greenland minstrelsy.
Two notable, historical figures created the two songs: poet and composer Jonathan Petersen (1881-1961) wrote ‘Takoranneqaaq imaq - Nuup ikersua’ in English ‘Great is the sea in Nuuk inlets’ while pastor, writer and composer Otto Rosing (1896-1965) wrote ‘Tarrilivissup seqerna qulaani’, in English ‘From the top view last glimpse of the sun’s rays. The former mentioned song, Camilla has so artistically interpreted on the stamp G553 with a value of DKK 49.00, while she has illustrated the latter song on the stamp G552 that has a value of DKK 0.50.
