Inuit People - Music & Dance

Inns North Canadian Arctic Hotels

For centuries, the beating of the drum has signalled the gathering of Inuit. The drum in the North, is heard especially in celebration of special occasions. Singers sit in a circle, while dancers swirl about to the beat of the pulsing drum. Today, the drum dance is still practiced in several communities and is always a unique treat for visitors.

Singing is another strong musical tradition here. Most adults have their own personal song that defines who they are. Throat singing is a phenomenon unto itself, and a chance to listen to it is treasured by everyone who has experienced the Inuit culture firsthand.

Early Europeans brought their musical traditions with them to the Arctic and left a lasting impression. To this day, the mouth organ, button accordion and fiddle are all common sights in musical gatherings here. Country-western and bluegrass blend with the local musical traditions. Each region of Nunavut has its own distinct style of square dancing to accompany their individual musical style.
