Tulugaq & Further Songs – Audio Recording on Vinyl
Tulugaq & Further Songs
An Inuktut Interpretation of a Classic Work.
In this very rare recording, Jaypeetee Arnakak recites his own Inuktut interpretation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven. Jaypeetee captures Poe’s meter and rhyme in this haunting recording, an experiment in Inuktut language interpretation.
the B side features original Inuktut music by recording artists Agaaqtoq, Kelly Fraser, and Jordan Muckpah.
The front cover was custom designed by Shuvinai Ashoona in response to listening to Tulugaq.
This is a unique listening opportunity for all audiences.
NAC Media thanks Hinrich Sachs, Fredrik Ehlin, and the Swedish Arts Grants Council for their efforts, funding, and partnership.
Recorded in Iqaluit, Nunavut by Chris Coleman at Nuvu Music Studio.
