A concertfilm recorded at the harbour in Copenhagen, Denmark with Faroese singer/songwriter Teitur – starring Faroese singer Eivør, Icelandic Disa and Herfølge Girlschoir.
The film starts before the actual concert and introduces the scenery before dusk as the concert is played on a boat next to the Northatlantic House in Denmark that represents Faroe Islands, Iceland and Greenland in Copenhagen. Teitur plays and interacts with the audience in different forms as he performs six songs of his own.
Teitur opens by singing his own song : ‘Walkin up a Hill‘ and it is followed by ‘Gone Fishing‘ an epic about the nature of being part of a hunters culture rather than farming – and it’s explained humorously by himself beforehand. ‘Antonio and his mobile phones‘ is sung and played by Teitur with musical inspiration from African music -and the audiences is interacting as they all play along on their mobile phones twice throughout the song. ‘Hard Work‘ is accompagnied by four folkdancers introducing the dance along with Teitur – and everybody is dancing as the song is sung and played. Next Icelandic singer Disa and a girls choir joins in and the audience is singing along a Danish interpretation of ‘Walkin up a Hill‘ as a christian psalm. And finally the surprise of famous singer Eivør is introduced by Teitur as she enters the stage boat and they make an emotional performance as they sing and play ‘Home‘ together.
