Inuktitut alt-country with throat-singing and reggae

The Jerry Cans are a Canadian band from Iqaluit, Nunavut. I heard about them recently when Tom Power, the new host of CBC radio program q was asked to list his favourite recordings of the year. Then I forgot their name, and ended up searching programs for Canada Day celebrations on Parliament hill, as I remembered Power mentioning that they played there (and denied a request by organizers to perform in English, as they only perform in Inuktitut.)

Anyways, this single Ukiuq, is so upbeat, I thought I would share. Lord knows the world could use any bit of light it can get these days.
