The Jerry Cans
The fast rising northern stars, the Jerry Cans, will be travelling to NXNE to share music inspired by their hometown of Iqaluit, Nunavut. With their unique mix of Inuktitut country swing, throat singing, and reggae, the Jerry Cans are a truly a one a kind group and distinctly northern.
The Jerry Cans perform many of their songs in Inuktitut and are passionate about preserving the language even as the north and their home community of Iqaluit evolve. They are also committed to representing northerners and to challenging some of the misperceptions they have encountered about life in the Arctic, their music evokes the contemporary north and the spirited people that choose to reside there.
It is not only the political motives, but also their rapidly developing reputation for getting elders and young people dancing has forced people to start noticing this high-energy group.
Let this truly unique band take you on a stroll through the streets of Iqaluit to share a glimpse of life in Arctic!
