People singing in pews at church and with their families at home; people singing in bars and barracks, campgrounds and community gatherings. Such scenes have largely faded from our cultural photobook. Maybe you sang with your classmates as a child (though even this experience has been curtailed along with cuts to school music programs). But when was the last time yo...

Traditional Inuit Thoat Singing and the Modern World Collide in This Astonishing Video

Let’s just get this out of the way… Musically speaking, Inuit throat singing—or katajjaq—is not going to be everyone’s cup of tea.
