Susan Aglukark is Canada’s first Inuk artist to win a Juno (4), a Governor General’s Performing Arts Award for lifetime artistic achievement, and she is an officer of the Order of Canada. Susan holds several Honourary Doctorate degrees and has held command performances.

During a career that has spanned more than 25 years, Susan’s journey as a singer-songwriter has led her to reflect on who she is, where she comes from and the importance of discovery – discovery of history, culture and self, this time of reflection, writing and songwriting has Susan coming back to one area of profound knowing, the Inuit are an extraordinary people deeply grounded in a culture forged by their Ancestors, their journey is what shaped them.

Produced by Chad Irschick, Dreaming Of Home is a collection of uplifting contemporary seasonal favourites, a combination of traditional and contemporary music, sung in English and her mother tongue Inuktitut. Susan has re-recorded some Christmas traditional songs like Silent Night and has also re-done one of her personal favourites Old Toy Trains. “The selection of songs on this new album was inspired by the realization that for many of us Christmas is often celebrated away from home, away from loved ones, and coming to the place in our lives where home is where the heart is, we can make whereever we are, home”. Please join Susan and her band for an evening of Christmas music. ????? – Upinnaq in this use means to be in awe or wonder.
