Sille and Rise
Silla & Rise combine Inuit-Throatsinging und futuristic dance beats. Silla is Cynthia Pitsiulak (Kimmirut in Nunavut, Canada) and Charlotte Qamaniq (Iglulik in Nunavut, Canada). Her name comes from the Inuktitut-Word "Sila", which means weather. Sila is what surrounds us, what connects us to our land to the moon, the stars, the sun, the ocean and the air we breathe.
