Riit | Indie88 Black Box Sessions

Riit performs songs from her 2019 album ataataga, live at Indie88 in the Black Box studio

From Panniqtuq, Nunavut, Riit visited us in the Black Box to perform two songs from her 2019 debut album ataataga. Her unique style of music combines electropop with traditional Inuit throat singing and features lyrics in the Inuktitut language.

Riit’s debut EP earned her nominations for Best Radio Single at the Indigenous Music Awards, and Indigenous Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards. She released her debut full-length album last year, produced by Graham Walsh from Holy Fuck, and recorded in Iqaluit and Toronto.
