Concert and launch of the 2018 Qilaut

To mark the end of Uqausirmut Quviasuutiqarniq, the Department of Culture and Heritage, invites Iqalummiut to the launch and concert of the 2018 Qilaut compilation album. Qilaut was created to celebrate Nunavut’s vibrant Inuktut music scene, and promote the use of Inuktut in daily life.

This year’s theme is Nunavutaaqsimaliqtilluta (20th Anniversary of Nunavut). Winners will perform their songs on:

  • Friday, March 29 at the Frobisher Inn’s Koojesse South from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Doors will open at 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, March 30 at 2:00 p.m. at the same venue. Doors will open at 1:30 p.m.

Join us in celebrating Nunavut’s annual Inuktut songwriting contest! Free copies of the album are available at Department of Culture and Heritage (Trigram building 903), or they can be downloaded at:
