Information/Write-up

This CD features seven different sets of performers, although pride of place goes to throat singers Alacie Tullaugaq and Lucy Amarualik, who, performing together, account for seven of the nineteen tracks. It is a compilation album, borrowing tracks from five Inukshuk Records issues, including “The Inuit Artist World Show Case” and “Katutjatut” throat singing. I especially enjoyed the two tracks by Montreal musician Laina Tullaugak. She has a strong and beautiful voice, the songs have distinctive melodies, and the accompaniment by flute and drums works well. I will definitely want to search out her album Piaraapivut, also on Inukshuk Records. The four tracks that have been taken from the 1994 Festival seem to have brighter, clearer sound on this issue. They are “The Man in the Moon” by Chuna McIntyre & Marie Meade, and the three short songs by the Pond Inlet Drama Group. McIntyre & Meade are also represented by a jew’s-harp instrumental and a lengthy dialogue piece, part spoken and part song. There is a lengthy unaccompanied aya-ya titled “Layer of Snow” by an elderly man named Titus Seeteenak. One of the eight throat singing items, “Dog Chewing Leming”, is by the duo of Lucy Kownak and Emily Alerk, who also perform a powerful aya-ya called “Dog Team”, one of the best tracks on the CD. Recommended.
