Mini Freeman

Mini Freeman is an Inuit writer, editor, translator, producer, and respected elder. Watch as she sings a song with Goota Desmarais. Inuit songs are not owned but are used by all Inuit women. Inuit throat singing is generally done by two individuals but can also include four or more people. Originally, Inuit throat singing was a form of entertainment among women while men were away on hunting trips. One would lead with short, deep rhythmic sounds while the other would respond. The leader would repeat sounds with short gaps in between. The follower would fill in these gaps with her own rhythmic sounds. Take a look at this song about being happy, now!
