Voices from Nunavut and Greenland unite

Greenlandic men’s choir Qissiat and three male Nunavut musicians will give a free concert together at Inukshuk High School, in Iqualuit, on Thursday evening.

The show will cap off four days of cultural exchange workshops organized by Nunavut’s performing arts society.

It will be the 12-member choir’s first performance outside of Greenland.

The two groups will entertain spectators with a capella singing, as well as rock and dance music.

The collaboration was made possible by funding from the governments of Nunavut and Greenland.
