With a style galvanized by darkness and haunting northern beauty, sisters Tiffany Ayalik and Inuksuk Mackay perform ancient traditional songs and eerie new compositions, leaving their listeners enthralled with the infinite possible answers to the question “what is the meaning of life?” With roots in Nunavut, the two grew up in Yellowknife. After years of developing hard-won skill, they forged their own form with haunting melodies and otherworldly sounds, eventually realizing that throat singing was not only a musical expression, but a radical, political act of cultural revitalization. As PIQSIQ, they have recorded three studio albums and perform improvisational looping live, creating a dynamic audience experience that changes with every show.
