Album Notes
This album was recorded during a slamming live performance in Anchorage Alaska's historic 4th Avenue Theatre.

WINNER of 2003 Native American Music Awards, Record of the Year.

Pamyua is an indigenous Alaskan Native band that fuses Arctic Inuit traditions with world rhythms. Their music features unique Inuit songs and dances from Alaska, inspired by funk, R&B and jazz. Though this first album is mostly traditional.

The group masters the ability to mix traditions with no boundaries, while still holding on to their Native roots. It is the enchanting harmonies, the sound of the didgeridoo, and the thunderous roll of the African djembe that causes a rich explosion of culture. - We like to call it Tribal Funk & World Music!

I've been dabbling in Pamyua's music for a couple of years now and finally invested in some more DLs via iTunes. Their music is great and I especially love the funk-inspired bass lines featured on this album. I plan on giving this CD as a gift to my boyfriend's mother, who is a huge music lover.

fabulous deep rooted energy, not to be passed by
This is the first time I've listened to Innuit music. I carried this CD around with me absolutely everywhere for the first ten days. Anytime I saw a CD player, I'd stick in Pamyua's Caught in the Act.

I found it completely riveting: the drumming, the mysterious-to-me lyrics, the classical piano mixed in with the African drums and guitar. Karina's voice haunts me; it's both dissonant and urgent.

Tracks #4 Incomplete and #11 Imumirpak bring me to a place of organic awe. Dance to these songs and you'll never be the same again.

Caught in the Act
I was very heartbroken when I couldn't make it to Teller to see you at the Dance Festival. So close yet so far to travel at night on the narrow road by myself with my 2 young ones. So I ordered your newest CD and waited 2 weeks for it to come to me here in Nome. Really do love it and enjoy your unique blend of voices and instruments. You're all fantanstic. Glad I did see you a couple other times here in Nome, once at Performing Arts in Anchorage and long ago at the state fair in Palmer, AK. May God keep blessing you with all of your creativity.


Great Music - embraces time and all races.
The music is uplifting and relaxing. It is arranged in a manner that helps it roll together from song to song. I would recommend it to everybody.

Great CD
This CD is quite refreshing and it is very uplifting. All the tracks are great and the blend of the indigenous language with the digeridoo and drumming is a wonderful combination.
