In our third episode, we look up, way up, to the North Coast of Turtle Island.
We find out what makes the north coast - and its influence on these artists - unique. We also learn how to pass the hours when the sun never rises and more behind the saying "when an elder dies a library closes".
You'll also hear Inuit throatsinging by Karen Panigoniak and Maria Illungiayok from Arviat, Nunavut.
This is just a slice - a super tasty, action-packed slice - of the diverse music and culture of the North Coast. Also check out RPM's North Coast YouTube Playlist for more.
The RPM podcast is produced & engineered by the amazing Paolo Pietropaolo.
