Have you ever heard of Yupik/Inuit hip-hop? Well, neither had almost anyone else as Phillip John Aarnaquq Charette and Alex Ellison have created "Tengaurtukut" (meaning "we are flying," or "we can fly" in Yupik), the first such music, and we at "Tillicum Wawa: Voices of the People," were proud to be the first to play this music. The music on "Tengaurtukut" is very soulful and seems to reach into your soul and bring out the music in your body and spirit. The CD will be out on September 16 and can be found at www.mrelive.com
. Alex brought KBOO an advance copy and we now have it in our library. Thank you Phillip and Alex!
