About Eitt minni

Second single from Faroe Islands collective Klingra evokes elegiac lamentations steeped in past-times yearnings. It offers an emotional piano composition with achingly moving field recordings from a 94 year old Faroese fisherman, who shared his stories as a sailor shortly before his death. These recollections touched on a tragedy that occurred by the west coast of Greenland in 1956, involving Faroese fishermen who had been forced out of local waters by German and British trawlers. When one of their ships sank, 14 men died, either from drowning or freezing.
