Tagline: Bringing Inuit Soul Music To The World
October 27, 2023 7:30pm
Often described as “Inuit soul music”, Pamyua was formed by brothers Phillip and Stephen Blanchett
when they stumbled upon a musical concept to blend Inuit drum and dance melodies with R&B vocal
styling and arrangements. Now joined by Ossie Kairaiuak and Karina Moeller, the quartet now travels
the world sharing their blend of cultural harmony, strongly influenced by their Yup’ik and Black heritage.
Pamyua has truly defined their own genre, showcasing Inuit culture and history through music, dance,
and masks from many Alaska Native cultures, as well as reinterpreting traditional melodies with
contemporary sounds of soul. Be prepared for a one-of-a-kind night of music!
