True North Favourite: Inuusiq


One of my favourite albums is "Inuusiq" by The Jerry Cans, a Canadian Band from Nunavut. I was instantly drawn to their energy and creativity when I first heard their song "Northern Lights" on the radio. Inuusiq is a wonderful celebration of Inuit culture. The album highlights the art of Inuit throat singing and most of the songs are sung in Inuktitut. Inuusiq has a great mix of both upbeat and slower songs - each of them unique and beautiful. The digital version of the album is available to borrow through Hoopla.
