Sharing Stories of Unbreakable Spirits

New Program Residency English French

As Twin Flames take listeners on a musical journey across Canada and the Arctic, they echo the voices of their ancestors and depict life on the land. Together, Chelsey June (Métis) and Jaaji (Inuk, Mohawk) represent Inuit, Indigenous and Métis groups in Canada. Their songs are written in English, French and Inuktitut. Through music they share the beauty of their cultures and incorporate both traditional and western instruments. This interactive show features original songs, thought provoking stories, Inuit throat singing and Indigenous instruments (Traditional Hand Drum and Spirit Flute). For younger audiences, Twin Flames are joined by their puppet friends Tulugaq (Raven), Okpik (Owl), Nanuq (Polar Bear) and Nattiq (Seal), as they explain how animals and nature play a vital role in survival. Older audiences will learn about realities that Inuit and Indigenous people face today and historical moments that led to a changed way of life, through stories and songs.
