Elisapie

  • Quebec (Canada)
  • Polar Pop

For many, the Far North is a distant and mythical land. But for Elisapie, it is the centre of the world. Whether she sings in English, Inuktitut or French, her organic pop sounds are fascinating forays of northern poetry into the southern imagination. Elisapie is an Inuk and proud of her origins, creating to raise awareness of the historical difficulties facing her people. Her raw folk style, her lyrical expression, thrust in the face of the world, are a shuddering cry from the heart, a mark of her character, driven by a sense of urgency and protest, but also gentleness and sensitivity.
