Multi-award winning, chart-topping Indigenous folk artists Twin Flames have long been celebrated for their sonic landscapes spanning Canada and the Arctic, honouring their ancestors through song in English, Inuttitut, and French along the way. This powerhouse husband and wife duo combines the talents of Chelsey June, who is métis (Algonquin Cree) from Ottawa, and Jaaji, who is Inuk and Mohawk from Nunavik.
Using unique sounds, Indigenous Spirit flutes, traditional drums and western instruments, and synthesizing harmonies, Twin Flames’ unique, eye-opening shows unveil a raw and honest experience and leave their audiences with a greater sense of knowledge and sensitivity.
Twin Flames have been nominated for 24 awards, including two Canadian Folk Music Award wins and three Native American Music Award wins. The duo has had two number one hits on the Indigenous Music Countdown’s Top 40; played over 1000 shows throughout Canada, Greenland, the United States, Australia, and France; and been selected as artist-in-residence for the 2019 Folk Alliance International Conference. In 2019, Twin Flames partnered with UNESCO to write, record, and perform “Human,” the official anthem celebrating the International Year of Indigenous Languages. “Human” was later chosen to be part of CBC’s Music Class Challenge. Their music video for “Broke Down Ski’tuuq” became the first Inuttitut music video to be featured on MuchMusic.
