Discovering katajjaniq – Nunavik’s Inuit throat singing | À la découverte du katajjaniq – le chant de gorge inuit du Nunavik

7:30, Sunday 5 Jun 2016 (1 hour)
UQAM, pavillon Judith-Jasmin (J) - Salle des boiseries (J-2805)
In English and French
The two Inuit artists Nina Segalowitz and Taqralik Partridge are offering us an initiation to katajjaniq, this thousand years old autochthonous expression of overtone singing which consists of an alternate dialogue of inhaled and exhaled guttural and vocal sounds. Throat singing is practiced just like a game: two women facing and challenging one another until one of them either laughs or runs out of breath.
(Meeting point: DS Registration table)
En français et en anglais
Les deux artistes Inuits Nina Segalowitz et Taqralik Partridge nous proposent une initiation au katajjaniq, cette expression autochtone millénaire de chant diaphonique qui consiste en un dialogue alterné de sons gutturaux et vocaux inspirés et expirés. Le chant de gorge se pratique comme un jeu : deux femmes face à face se relance jusqu’à ce que l’une d’elle rit ou perde son souffle.
