Join us in celebrating Native American Heritage month with Pamyua: Inuit Music and Dance from Alaska

Honoring and sharing indigenous Inuit cultural traditions through music and dance passed down through generations, Pamyua is Alaska’s most famous Inuit band. The group’s compelling performances blend traditional Inuit drum/dance melodies and songs of their ancestors with contemporary R&B and soul music, often referred to as “tribal funk” or “Inuit soul.”  Founded by brothers Phillip and Stephen Blanchett, Pamyua includes Ossie Kairaiuak and frequent guest members. The band is proud to represent indigenous culture, and believes music and dance create unity. Together, each member masterfully interprets the Inuit traditions with joy and sincerity. The response to their message is tremendous and the group is a symbol of pride for Alaska’s indigenous people and all who see them perform. 

Students may have heard Pamyua on Nat Geo’s series “Life Below Zero: First Alaskans”  as well as PBS’ children’s show “Molly of Denali,” or on Lincoln Center’s Concerts for Kids. 

Format: 60 minutes, in-person performance at Flushing Town Hall’s theater. 
Grade Levels: recommended for grades 4-8. 
Tickets: ALL tickets $10 per person.
