CD Throat Singing Conference Puvirnituq, 2001

The most comprehensive recording of Throat Singing ever recorded.
This collection became possible when Avataq Cultural Institute brought 100 of Canada’s Top throat singers to Puvirnituq, Nunavik for the first throat singers’ gathering in September 2001.
The conference was the start of a concerted effort to preserve traditional and modern Canadian Inuit throat singing and will lead to the formation of the Canadian Inuit Throatsingers Association.Inuit women travel worldwide to entertain in a vocal style unique to Inuit culture. In this recording, you will hear the best of these performers, young and old, from Nunavik to Nunavut.
