Hot Eskimos is an Icelandic jazz trio. Their first CD, Songs From the Top of the World (2011) has become a bestseller in the Icelandic jazz category. The album has a kind of a crossover quality to it since the songs come from the pop, rock, punk and folk repertoire. Songs by The Sugarcubes, Jonsi in Sigur Ros, Björk, and Emiliana Torrini along with a curious selection of Icelandic evergreens. Hot Eskimos recycle the music in their own naughty way but the performances are expressive and gentle so the music tends to please jazz enthusiasts and uninitiated alike.
