In a segment that we call the q Thursday Headliner, we invite a band or artist we think you need to hear to kick off the show with a live performance. This week, Inuk musician Riit drops by the q studio along with singer-songwriter Zaki Ibrahim, throat singer Alexia Galloway-Alainga and DJ Edna Snyder to perform some new tracks from her debut album, ataataga.

Riit's debut album, ataataga, is out now. You can catch her performing at Harbourfront Centre's Festival of Cool this weekend in Toronto.
