2021 Qilaut album launch concert
11 May 2022
The Department of Culture and Heritage is pleased to announce the launch of the 2021 Qilaut compilation album with two upcoming live concerts.
The concerts will take place at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 14 at the Aqsarniit Hotel in Iqaluit. This will be a free family friendly event that is open to the public. Please note that masks are strongly recommended for all in attendance.
Qilaut is the Department of Culture and Heritage’s annual Inuktut songwriting contest. The purpose of the contest is to celebrate our vibrant Inuktut music scene and inspire the creation of more original music in Inuktut.
The 2021 Qilaut theme was “Family and Friends”. Both concerts will include performances centered around this theme by the 2021 Qilaut contest winners. CDs will be available for free at the concert and are also available at the Department of Culture and Heritage office in Iqaluit on the first floor of the Trigram building (903).
Please join us in celebrating our Inuktut music and local talent!
