About Twin Flames:

Twin Flames is an exciting husband and wife duo that combines two accomplished and very unique singer-songwriters Chelsey June an Algonquin-Cree Métis woman from Ottawa and Jaaji an Inuk Mohawk man from Nunavik and Kahnawake. Despite polar opposite backgrounds, Twin Flames found a common musical language. Together they take the audience on a musical journey across Canada and the Arctic. They echo the voices of their ancestors and depict life on the land with thought-provoking songs in English, French and Inuktitut, gently educating audiences on realities of Indigenous and Inuit history and current issues.
