| Projet Saimaniq

Saimaniq evokes in listeners a sentiment of infinite liberty and adventure through the desert auditory spaces of Katajjaq (inuit throat singing).

 

Rhythms from the Arab Emirates, flutes from Japan and Scandinavia, as well as electronic music join together to pay tribute to the beauty and the richness of inuit art.

 

An unforgettable voyage with composer Katia Makdissi-Warren, and singers Lydia Etok, Nina Segalowitz and Hélène Martel. Katia Makdissi-Warren share the artistic direction with throat singer Lydia Etok and multimedia designer & (metteur en scene) Emmanuel Béhier-Migeon.

We are Opus Prize winners of the album of the year 2018 in world music.
