Award-winning Indigenous duo head east in October for first major Maritime tour.
Indie rock, synth rock, and folk pop are just a few of the ways critics have tried to label the music of Twin Flames. It isn’t an easy task and really, labels only serve the needs of those who choose to employ them. From the beginning, husband and wife duo Chelsey June and Jaaji have chosen to let their music speak for itself. And when considered alongside the nearly 30 various music awards and nominations they have accumulated over the past four years as Twin Flames, it is obvious they have something special going on.
June, métis (Algonquin Cree) from Ottawa, and Jaaji, Inuk and Mohawk from Nunavik, are part of what Tobique First Nation performer, composer and musicologist Jeremy Dutcher famously called an Indigenous renaissance. Their cultural backgrounds span Canada’s geography and their songs, delivered through a mix of English, French and Inuktitut, have helped them earn a unique place among contemporary music makers from coast to coast.
Twin Flames will undertake their first major East Coast tour in October playing dates throughout Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador.
