    Wish You Were Here (Inuktitut cover by Elisapie)

    Canadian Inuk artist Elisapie has just released a covers album of rock songs performed in Inuktitut, giving them her own flavor. Check her Wish You Were version.

    From her website:
    Inuktitut is Elisapie's fourth solo effort. It's a covers album that sprouted in the artist's mind in the winter of 2021, when songs by artists such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Blondie, Fleetwood Mac, Metallica, Queen, and Cyndi Lauper, whose music once took over the community radio airwaves throughout Nunavik, Northern Quebec, triggered a flood of tears. Many of these songs were an escape as the community and cultural references were being challenged by colonization. Elisapie began a mental archaeological process: finding songs associated with emotional memories and people from her past. She followed that with a second, more prosaic quest. She sought the permission of the original artists to translate and adapt the songs that are now on this album
    Also, the Led Zeppelin, Queen, Metallica and Blondie songs are something to hear!

    Interesting, particularly the instrumental arrangement with its nice brass sections
