Nuori Inka

Jarmo Juhani – Nuori inka

Cultural appropriation, Finland, 1981. Shameless stealing and intentional misinterpretation or intertextual homage? Nuori Inka means young Inka in Finnish. Inka is a name for 6215 females and less than 5 males according to the Population Register Center. In this case Nuori Inka is not a mere mortal human being, but a homeless ghost of a young Inca-being referring to the destruction of the Inca culture. Kudos to dj Mikko Mattlar for pointing out this one and dj Piitu for handing me a copy. The record wasn’t a huge success in 1981, but it’s been a pleasure to see the reactions on the dancefloors of 2017!
