In this hands-on workshop, you will learn Inuit throat singing with Charlotte Qamaniq, whose throat singing career has led to three Juno Award nominations. Charlotte will guide you through various exercises to help you develop slightly more advanced skills in Inuit throat singing.
Brief description of an intermediate singer:
- You’re able to sing more than 2 songs comfortably
- You can lead and follow, or are learning how to do both
- You’re able to use both vocal and throat sounds together, for example "Anuri" (the Wind song) or "Nirliit" (Goose sounds) - just as long as you can make the transition from voice to throat, it doesn't have to be perfect just have the ability to do it
We will practice the following songs that have both voice and throat:
- Anuri (Wind)
- Nirliit (Geese)
- Kuurvaluk (the River)
- Pinnguarutik (Competition)
