Recorded in 1991, this CD collection of traditional ajaja songs sung by Elders of Igloolik records twenty-four ‘known’ song-stories of the last Inuit generation born into the ancient lifestyle, and the first to move into the modern world of today. Many of these songs have been sung and passed down orally for hundreds or even thousands of years, but are sung and recorded here in professional digital audio, for the first and last time by individuals who have since passed away.

Year of Production: 2007
