Inuit musician and filmmaker Elisapie was born to an Inuk mother and Newfoundland father, and raised by adopted Inuit parents in the Great North. A natural communicator, she yearned from an early age to share her traditional culture with the rest of the world and, in 1999, moved to Montréal to study journalism. There, she directed award-winning NFB documentary If the Weather Permits. In 2000, she met composer Alain Auger, who would become her partner in internationally acclaimed Inuk folk duo Taima. In 2009, the artist released her solo debut, There Will Be Stars. Her folk-pop hinted songs deeply reflect her love and attachment to her Inuit roots, with themes such as love, nature and the spiritual connections that unite us all. Travelling Love followed in 2012.
