FEATURED: Iva and Riit musical performance (July 21)


Don’t miss this special show by Iva (Kathleen Ivaluarjuk Merritt) whose music is a melodic mix of Inuit throat-singing, poetry-infused and Celtic-influenced folk music at the Canadian Museum of Nature on Friday, July 22.

Iva’s début album Ivaluarjuk: Ice, Lines & Sealskin (2015) celebrates life and identity; bridging sounds from both her Inuit and Irish roots.

Joining Iva for this show is Inuk artist Riit (Rita Claire Mike-Murphy) whose first EP was just released this year.

Tickets for this show allow free entry to the new Canada Goose Arctic Gallery as of 7:00 PM. Take this opportunity to visit the Museum’s newest permanent gallery!
