Singer-songwriter, filmmaker, and activist Elisapie crafts songs with an acute sense of how the notes will travel through the air. The breath behind her haunting voice, the gentle roar of an electric guitar, the reverberation of a plucked bass string, the flicker of a horn, the friction of her Inuktitut, English, and French lyrics intertwining—“each track follows a living pulse of its own creation” (Exclaim!). Assembled layer by layer, her contemplative campfire ballads erupt into enveloping folk-rock crescendos. With this approach, she evokes her Inuit roots, examining her connection to the land, the history of her people, and her ache as she longs to reconnect after decades away. She explores all these themes in her recent Juno Award-winning album (for Indigenous Music Album of the Year), The Ballad of the Runaway Girl, which was also shortlisted for the 2019 Polaris Music Prize.
