Qallunak ( pronounced kadlunak ) is an album where tradition and modernity interweave. Musician, composer and Canadian producer François Couture was inspired by throat singing and traditional inuit song to create this music. With the collaboration of Annie Ikkidluak, Celestin Erkidjuk, Daniel McLister, Elisha Kilabuk and Koomoo Nooveeya McLister with the songs.
A surprising album where two worlds meet and become one. Electronic, acoustic and vocal sonorities combine together to redefine a modern environment integrated in its roots. In the first few seconds, the listener is immediately immersed in the universe of the Canadian far North.
A combination of cinematographic, electro, pop and other arrangements contribute to emphasize the emotion emanating from these traditional songs. The unique character of this recording makes it impossible to circumvent.
