  4. Pamyua (pronounced: bum yo-ah)

    The performance group Pamyua brings Inuit music to the world

    Pamyua showcases Inuit culture and uses their art as a platform to share indigenous knowledge and history. Their performance derives from traditional melodies reinterpreted with contemporary vocalization and instrumentation. This blend can be described as “Inuit Soul.”

    Their unique performance style helps the group stand out as honorary cultural ambassadors of the Arctic. Pamyua believes that unity is possible though music and dance and the members interpret Inuit traditions masterfully with joy and sincerity. The response to this message is tremendous as the group is a symbol of pride for Alaska’s indigenous people and to all who see them perform.

    In 2003, Pamyua won a Native American Music Award (Nammy) for Record of the Year for their album Caught in the Act. Selected by the Alaska State Council on the Arts, Pamyua received the 2005 Alaska Native Arts Award.

    Pamyua established Arctic Voice Records in 1998. Their music is featured in the films Christmas in the Clouds, Dear Lemon Lima and in the Discovery television series Flying Wild Alaska.

    Pamyua represents the enduring heritage of Inuit people. Their performance encourages audiences to appreciate indigenous traditions while relating ancient traditional wisdom.

    Pamyua also teaches and performs in schools continuing their work to communicate interactively to broaden awareness and inspire unity.

    Founding members Phillip Blanchett, Stephen Blanchett and Ossie Kairaiuak are from the Yukon/ Kuskokwim River Delta region in southwestern Alaska. Karina Moeller also a founding member is from Nuuk, Greenland.
