For this major series to accompany BBC One's 'Human Planet', Andy Kershaw and Lucy Duran go in search of music from some of the world's remotest locations.. This week: the Arctic.
Greenland: Lucy greets the New Year with music, and hears the mighty voice of Greenland's greatest singer, Rasmus Lyberth.
Norway: Andy goes reindeer-herding under the midnight sun with Human Planet's May-Torril, who also happens to be an accomplished singer in the Sami tradition of yoiking.
Canada: Inuit singer Tanya Tagaq introduces us to her village in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, and sings the intensely soulful music of the western Inuit.
Siberia: Andy meets musicians from Yakutsk, the coldest city on earth, where long winter nights are whiled away with the help of a Jew's harp.
Producers Roger Short and James Parkin.
