Stories from Our Land - Inngiruti: The Thing that Sings!

In Pangnirtung, two elders reminisce about the dances held in their community 50 years ago. One of the elders is master accordion player Simeonie Keenainak, and pretty soon he is making toe-tapping music with his instrument. In this celebration of the pleasures of music and dance, Keenainak plays for the enjoyment of friends, family and the community at large.

    @Katedu--> I've contacted the producer of the film and he was unable to answer. He did suggest contacting an Inuktituk speaker for the answer. Sorry we couldn't be of more assistance!

    Does the word they are using mean "song" (as in with lyrics) or does it mean "tune"/"melody"? Are there separate words for these two terms in Inuit dialects, the way traditional instrumental musicians who speak English differentiate between them? (The general English-speaking public often uses the word "song" for an instrumental tune, but most musicians I know don't do that.)
