Nanook immediately became one of the best-known bands in Greenland with the release of their debut album Seqinitta Qinngorpaatit (Our Sun is Shining on You) in 2009. The group now tours internationally and is quickly gathering new fans despite the fact that their songs are sung entirely in Greenlandic. Nanook's songs have been featured in the Discovery Channel’s series Flying Wild Alaska.

Nordic Cool 2013 is presented in cooperation with the Nordic Council of Ministers and Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.
