CD Release Concert

Anchorage quartet PAMYUA brings Inuit music to the world. The groupís soulful mixture of Inuit drumsongs brilliantly blends ancient music and dance traditions from the Arctic with R&B, World Music, Gospel, Reggae and Jazz. Reflecting their diverse heritage, Pamyua is widely known for their enchanting vocal harmonies and a cappella arrangements of Yupíik and Greenlandic drumsongs. But itís the memberís playful, spontaneous and charismatic personalities that audiences fall in love with. Adding to their vocal blend, Pamyua performs with musicians to bring a bit of jazz-funk Š la Sly and the Family Stone to the stage. The seventeen-year-old group proudly carries on the stories, songs and traditions from their Inuit culture and shares a bit of Inuit lifestyle with each audience around the world.

PAMYUA /bum yo-ah/ is an Inuit word meaning:
Verb: To request an encore of a drumsong or dance
Noun: The tail of an animal, object or idea

Pamyua is presented by Alaska Native Heritage Center.
