(Songs of the Inuit) [JVC Japan]
Inuit song in friendly competition includes using your opponents mouth as a resonating cavity, the general idea being to win by making your opponent tire first, or make them fall about laughing. The most significant cover-note points to the fact that this traditional game has remained unchanged in recent times because of the parallel preservation of the Inuit language. Touché
