Taqralik




"Taqralik Partridge is originally from Kuujjuaq, Nunavik, in Arctic Quebec. She is a spoken word artist, writer, and throatsinger of Inuit and Scottish heritage. As an urban Inuk, she speaks to city life in the south with a style grounded in the tradition of Inuit storytelling blended with “urban speak.” She weaves real-life stories with rhyme, lullaby, and throatsinging. She has toured the Canadian Arctic with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra. She now lives in Montreal." - Ogamas Aboriginal Literary Festival 2009
