Drawing on her northern roots for inspiration and strength, Susan Aglukark has crafted powerful songs that relate the stories of Canada's Inuit. Released to critical and commercial acclaim, her groundbreaking albums reflect the lives, circumstances, beauty and heritage of the Inuit. While she is widely respected for addressing difficult topics, at its heart her music conveys optimism for the future through its rhythms, melodies and themes of hope, spirit and encouragement. This emotive artist also spends a considerable portion of her time reaching out to northern youth and addressing the tragedy of youth suicide.
