Angela Amarualik was born and raised in the tiny community of Igloolik. Like many small communities in Canada’s Arctic, Igloolik had many social problems. Angela worked hard to retain a good attitude, improve her circumstances, and be a good role model for the younger kids in her town. Already community role model – as well as Miss Igloolik – Angela now uses her music to inspire Nunavummiut youth and share Inuit culture with people around the world. Her music has taken her across Canada, and she is finally ready with her first album. Starting off with the Ukulele, Angela began writing songs in her native language, Inuktitut. Her musical style is a mix between ancient Inuit melodies and throat-singing,and the pop music of her childhood heroes,Beatrice Deer and Hilary Duff. In November 2018, Angela will be releasing her self-titled debut album. The first single is called Angirrarviga (a-ni-ak-vi-ga) and is a pop/rock song about missing home.
