Jaaji, (Inuk from Nunavik and Mohawk Kanien’kehá:ka from Kahnawake) and Chelsey June (Métis, Algonquin, Cree and settler heritage) from Ottawa, are part of an Indigenous music renaissance. Critics have variously described their music as indie rock, synth rock, and folk-pop – but assigning easy labels doesn’t do their music justice. From the beginning, this husband and wife duo have chosen to let their creative outflow speak for itself. With a seamless mix of English, French, and Inuktitut, they weave together storytelling, soaring harmonies, and belting vocals to convey a message of unwavering celebration and hope.
And, when considering their four Canadian Folk Music Awards, three Native American Music Awards, and 30+ various other music awards and nominations that they’ve accumulated over the past seven years as Twin Flames, it’s obvious they have something special going on.
