INUANIMA was formed in 2019 by Aviaja Lumholt and Igor Rado after having collaborated as music workshop leaders in a youth project in Narsaq, South Greenland. INUANIMA played their debut concert in freetown Christiania, Copenhagen. Since then they have played several shows and continuosly been working on what today has become the performance concert,
THE ROARING SEA.
