Encounters by Gordon Williamson.
Two Inuit throat singers, Winnie Ittukallak and Lisa Louise Ittukallak, join the renowned German vocal ensemble Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart and accordionist Margit Kern to perform Gordon Williamson’s major new work.
This intercultural meeting is the result of a close collaboration between the Canadian composer now based in Germany, the Avataq Cultural Institute and indigenous community of Puvirnituq (Nunavik), as well as with the featured Inuit singers.
