An Inuktut Interpretation of a Classic Work.

45 RPM Vinyl Album

“In this very rare recording, Jaypeetee Arnakak recites his own Inuktut interpretation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven. Jaypeetee captures Poe’s meter and rhyme in this haunting recording, an experiment in Inuktut language interpretation.

the B side features original Inuktut music by recording artists Agaaqtoq, Kelly Fraser, and Jordan Muckpah.

The front cover was custom designed by Shuvinai Ashoona in response to listening to Tulugaq.”

The record is part of the publication project Fog Friend Font. Ways of Doing Multilingual Sense and is edited by Hinrich Sachs / Fredrik Ehlin
