A Nunavut musician is blending hip hop beat boxing and traditional Inuit throat singing as a unique vocal mix to show off his culture and inspire a younger generation.

Nelson Tagoona of Baker Lake, is pushing his musical talents in throat boxing. 

"I want to be there for that one that needs the extra push the way I did. I want to make a difference for people," Tagoona said.

After the suicide of his father when he was younger, Tagoona said he experienced tension and anxiety but has found "support within the music that I do."

"I try and be there for the youth and I feel like it's important to add a little bit of shining colour to get rid of all that anxiety."
