Elisapie at Luminato

Ambassador for Inuit culture, Elisapie represents the wild and rough beauty of the North. She grew up in Salluit, dreaming of the South. Then came her escape to Montreal, where she started a family and forgot about the extremes of the North. Elisapie is now reconnecting with her origins, offering her soulful down-home folk music as she tenderly looks back on her heritage.
