Heartbeat

It's a music as old as the North itself. The beat of skin drums...the throat songs of nature.

Drumming and throat singing are ancient Inuit traditions.  But they're traditions that skipped the generation of the Blake sisters of Rigolet.  Even though the sisters were raised on the Labrador coast, they didn't truly discover their musical culture until they moved to the city.

Now, they embrace it. As a family. They drum to the rhythm of the heartbeat.
